Excerpt: Stanford President Marc Tessier-Lavigne and Stanford Law School (SLS) Dean Jenny Martinez sent a letter of apology to Judge Kyle Duncan on Saturday after his public complaint regarding the treatment he received during a speech he gave on Thursday at SLS.

Throughout Duncan’s speech, student protesters booed and made various loud comments, frequently drowning out his voice. In fliers put up in advance of the event, protesters called Duncan a right-wing advocate for laws that would harm women, immigrants and LGBTQ+ people. SLS Associate Dean for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Tirien Steinbach stepped in less than 30 minutes into his speech after Duncan repeatedly asked for an administrator to help control the audience.
