Laura Curry, 59, an adjunct professor of media studies at the University at Buffalo, was charged with disorderly conduct during what police said was a protest against a pro-life display that had been set up near the Student Union on the North Campus in Amherst.

UB police said she was given a ticket about 12:50 a.m. for an appearance later this month in Amherst Town Court. She reportedly objected to some parts of the display.
