A Jewish Defense League activist filed a police complaint against Georgetown University after campus police ejected him February 18 from a Palestine Solidarity Movement conference. Campus security threw Bill Maniaci of Reno, Nev., and Matthew Finberg of Boulder, Colo., out of the event, which was aimed at promoting divestment from Israel.

Maniaci said two campus security officers kicked or hit him in his ribs and knocked his head while dragging him out of the event. He filed a police complaint and says he plans to sue.

Maniaci, 64, has a heart condition and said he was treated for a concussion. A univeristy spokesman said the ejection was non-violent.
