Refuses To' Discipline
In 'U' Rule ViolatiOnS
Vows to Uphold, Only Regulations
Written and Approved. by Students
Joint Judiciary Council last night acquitted two students
charged with violating Un'iversity regulations on grounds
that "It would not enforce any rule that had not been passed
by an autonomous student legislative body."
In the landmark decision, JJC held that it would not
recognize the validity of two University regulations because
they had been set by the school administration rather than
the student government.
JJC is the University's court of appeals which hears cases
of students convicted of violation of non-academic Univer-
sity regulations by judiciaries of dormitories, fraternities,
sororities and the campus driving court. When the current
10 member JJC group was ap-
