LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) - Bill Ayers and a University of Wyoming student are suing the school after it banned the former radical from speaking on campus. Ayers was a Vietnam-era radical who now is a professor at the University of Illinois-Chicago. Ayers makes college speeches and is routinely picketed, but the University of Wyoming last week banned him from using any university venue for a planned April 28 lecture.

Ayers and student Meg Lanker sued on Thursday, asking a federal judge to issue an injunction and allow the lecture. A university spokeswoman has declined to comment on the suit. Lanker told the Casper Star-Tribune that Ayers will speak at the Laramie Civic Center if he's not allowed on campus.
