University lawyers said their case is built on legal
"There's no legal foundation for those arguments.
Our attorneys were quite confident it would not pre-
vail," University spokeswoman Julie Peterson said on
behalf of the college's legal counsel team.
Weber claimed UMAJIC's threat was the final
catalyst in convincing the University to reinstate the
13 contracts with Coke, pointing out that the admin-
istration announced the temporary restoration of
purchasing on the same day as the group's deadline,
The Michigan Daily - Tuesday, April 18, 2006 - 7
University officials deny his claim.
"This letter by the students didn't have any direct
impact on our decision to reinstate. The decision was
made over several weeks - it was a coincidence of
timing," Peterson said.
She explained that contrary to claims by both UMA-
JIC and the Coke coalition, the University's decision to
bring back the fizzy drink was made through careful
discussions with the Atlanta-based company that have
been ongoing since late December.
Weber said he hopes to convince the University to
unconditionally comply with his request in a meeting
with Dan Sharphorn, the University's deputy general
counsel, later this week. If it does not, he and Cun-
ningham will file the lawsuit at the Ann Arbor Dis-
trict Court on Monday, Weber said.
Although neither student has any legal experience,
they intend to represent themselves.
Members of the Coke coalition, who claim the
University prematurely reinstated the contract behind
their backs, are also extremely skeptical of Weber and
Cunningham's ability to win the lawsuit if they file.
"Our coalition hasn't taken them very seriously,"
said Clara Hardie, RC senior and member of the activ-
ist group. "Personally, I think the whole thing is pretty
ridiculous. They have no legitimacy whatsoever."
None of the other universities around the country
that have suspended contracts with Coke have rein-
stated purchasing. About a dozen schools, includ-
ing New York University, have stopped selling Coke
products after finding the company guilty of human
and labor rights violations.

For Tuesday, April 18, 2006
(March 21 to April 19)
You have to admit it's your nature to
leap into a debate. I advise you to resist
this impulse. Lots of people are quarrel-
some today. Zip thy lip.
(April 20 to May 20)
This is one of those days when you
can barely agree with yourself! One
voice tells you to do one thing, then
another voice tells you to do another.
Relax; you're not really hearing voices.
It's two aspects of your mind.
(May 21 to June 20)
Don't get on your high horse when
dealing with friends and groups today. I
say this because it's very easy to overre-
act to what others say right now.
(June 21 to July 22)
Avoid disagreements with bosses, par-
ents, VIPs and authority figures. You
won't win. Nevertheless, you want to get
your two cents' worth in. (Think before
(July 23 to Aug. 22)
Political, religious and philosophical
areas are all fodder for potential argu-
ments today. Steer clear of these touchy
subjects! You're only preaching to the
choir or deaf ears.
(Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)
push anyone's buttons.
(Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)
Be careful when talking to co-workers
today. Something could get blown out of
proportion and turn into an argument.
Remember that you have to work with
these people in the future. (Oh, yeah.)
(Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)
Parents must be especially patient
with children today. Your nerves are
frayed. The quickest way to settle a
messy situation is often with a hug.
(Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)
Family conflicts might erupt today.
There's also a chance for broken appli-
ances and small accidents in the home.
Be extra careful. Take your time.
(Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)
It's not worth getting into an argument
with siblings, relatives or neighbors.
What's the point of that? You have to get
along with these people. Demonstrate
grace under pressure.
(Feb. 19 to March 20)
Don't quarrel with others about money
and possessions today. It won't resolve
anything. Wait until another day to dis-
cuss these matters.
YOU BORN TODAY You're very
determined, creative and earnest about
expressing yourself through your many
talents. People find you charming and
