UBC has been served a lawsuit for its cancellation of far-right figure Andy Ngo's event at UBC Robson Square, originally scheduled for January 29, 2020.

The Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms (JCCF) and UBC Free Speech Club (FSC) announced that the JCCF has filed a petition for judicial review against UBC on July 10, 2020. The JCCF and its lawyers have filed the petition on the FSC's behalf.

The FSC, which is not an AMS club, announced its intention to sue the university shortly after UBC had cancelled Ngo's event.
