UC Berkeley 'Free Speech Week' in jeopardy due to failure to reach requirements

BERKELEY, Calif. (KGO) -- The UC Berkeley student group hosting a series of conservative speakers later this month has not paid a required security deposit or confirmed event details.

The "Berkeley Patriot" Organization turned in a contract to hold the so-called "Free Speech Week."

But a school spokesperson said it never put down the deposit Friday as required in the contract for security purposes.

The four-day event is planned for a week from Sunday.

The university said the group still has time to pay up, confirm speakers and comply with security requirements.
