At a press conference and in a federal lawsuit that was filed on Tuesday, the Coalition to Save Westminster Choir College in Princeton has argued that the terms a 1991 merger agreement between the choir college and Rider College (now Rider University) would be violated if the choir college is shut down or moved from Princeton. A part of the intent of that agreement was to prevent the merger from becoming a land grab where a school could take Westminster over and later shut down the school and sell the land, supporters of the school have argued.
