Student Judiciary denies MCSC’s request for appeal

The Student Judiciary denied the Multicultural Student Coalition's request for an appeal Tuesday, upholding the decision to deny the group funding eligibility.

MCSC requested the judiciary reconsider its decision in the group's original appeal challenging the Student Services Finance Committee's decision to deny it funding.

SSFC ruled the group could not receive funding in October when committee members determined the group did not spend a majority of its time "directly serving" students.

The group challenged SSFC's decision, which the judiciary then upheld.

In its request to challenge the court's ruling, MCSC said SSFC applied the eligibility criteria in an unfair manner.

SJ Chief Justice Kathryn Fifield would not comment on why the SJ denied MCSC's request for an appeal until the justices are able to draft an official judgment.
