Several messages left at the school, including one to President Jill Stearns, were not returned. In the video, Van Tuinen is confronted by an unidentified campus police officer within minutes of passing out the pamphlets. When he protests, he is told there are rules. But do you know what this is? he asks. What are the rules? Why are the rules tied to my free speech? Van Tuinen explains that he wants to start an organization called Young Americans for Liberty.

Occidental College settles with students in sexual assault case
Occidental College has reached a monetary settlement with at least 10 current and former students who were part of a federal complaint that accused officials at the Eagle Rock campus of repeatedly mishandling allegations of sexual assault, according to three sources familiar with the agreement. During talks last week, senior officials at the liberal arts college agreed to pay the women an undisclosed sum on the condition that they not speak publicly about the colleges handling of their cases, the sources said. The women all represented by Gloria Allreds law firm were among 37 who claimed that Occidental deliberately discouraged alleged victims from reporting sexual assaults, misled students about their rights during campus investigations and retaliated against whistle-blowers who criticized the colleges handling of the cases. The complaint, first filed in April, has since been revised to include allegations from 13 additional people, including some faculty members, bringing the total number of complainants to 50. Federal investigators are expected to visit the college in coming weeks, the sources said. The federal Title IX complaint contains allegations from students and alumni who said: Occidental College has fostered a hostile learning environment through decisions designed to bury the true numbers of sexual assaults on campus. When alleged victims went to administrators for help, the complaint said, they reported being betrayed by campus administrators, and re-victimized. In a prepared statement, Occidental spokesman Jim Tranquada said Wednesday, We cannot comment except to say that this matter has been resolved.
