Advertisement for "Mock Trial of President Robinson"
CCNY's undergraduate paper, The Campus, reported several days after the mock trial that a student jury acquitted Schappes after deliberation of "one one-hundredth of a second." The event saw several students appear as witnesses on behalf of Schappes, with others speaking against President Robinson. The student paper reported 1,500 students in attendance at the event which was sponsored by CCNY's chapter of the American Student Union, a national left-wing organization of students.
