The Council on American-Islamic Relations has denounced University of Central Florida professor Jonathan Matusitz for what it calls his anti-Muslim bigotry.
Matusitz realized a member of that group, Samantha Bowden, was randomly attending his communications class Oct. 1.
"Her demeanor was not threatening. It was not aggressive but that's not the point. The point is she had no legal right to sit in my class," Matusitz said.
