Flotilla fundraiser at Rutgers University

An extremist student group at Rutgers University hosted a fundraising event for the flotilla movement in Turkey, the goal of which is to break the Israeli naval blockade of Gaza and provide support to the designated foreign terrorist organization Hamas. Several thousand dollars were raised and held in a school account prior to their intended release to flotilla participants.

We submitted an extensive memorandum of law to the then-President of Rutgers, detailing and warning of the severe criminal penalties and civil liabilities that would arise if the school released the funds. Rutgers heeded the warning and did not release the funds.
