Forever is forever. Until it isn't.

Alumni of the College of Law, San Francisco (CLSF) and descendants of Serranus Hastings filed a lawsuit earlier this month against CLSF for removing the word Hastings from the name of the law school.

Campus Reform reported in June that the law school, formerly known as the University of California Hastings College of the Law (UCHCL), changed its name after the state legislature proposed an assembly bill advocating for the name change.

“S.C. Hastings, perpetrated genocidal acts against Native California Indigenous Peoples, most especially the Yuki Tribe,” the bill read. “In connection with the name change authorization, the Board of Directors of the College determined that changing the name of the College is in the best interests of the continuation of the College in perpetuity, and is an element of the College’s ongoing work to address the needs of the current generation of Yuki Tribal members.”

Nearly a dozen officials of the university and the state of California are listed as defendants.

The lawsuit details the 1878 agreement between Hastings and the State of California entitled “An Act to create Hastings’ College of the Law, in the University of the State of California.”

Hastings was required to provide a $100,000 payment to the state treasury, which he did, and in return, the college was “to be forever known and designated as ‘Hastings College of the Law.’”
