An associate and organizer of campus tours for white nationalist Richard Spencer is suing Ohio State University after school officials refused to rent campus space for a speech.

The lawsuit was filed on behalf of Georgia State University graduate student and Spencer tour organizer Cameron Padgett. Ohio State has declined comment. The school rejected the request after conferring with law enforcement authorities and considering Spencer's University of Florida appearance Thursday. Similar lawsuits are pending against Michigan StateĀ  and Penn State Universities. The University of Cincinnati is allowing Spencer to speak.
