The University of Arkansas will have to pay $33,120 in attorneys fees to a preacher who sued the school over alleged free speech violations.

U.S. District Judge Jimm Larry Hendren rejected Gary Don Bowman's request for $75,000 in attorneys fees, instead awarding him the lesser amount Wednesday. University attorneys had opposed the request, saying it was excessive.

Bowman, of Cherokee County, Okla., sued the university in October 2003, saying the school policy of allowing him only five days to preach on campus was illegal.
