EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — A federal judge will decide whether to force Michigan State University to allow campus space to be rented to white nationalist Richard Spencer so he can deliver a speech later this month.

An 11-page lawsuit filed Sunday night in U.S. District Court in western Michigan contends that the East Lansing school’s refusal to rent a conference room or lecture hall to a Spencer supporter on security grounds violates free speech and other constitutional rights.
