Campus speech

August 23, 2012

A federal judge ordered the University of Cincinnati to liberate its "free speech zone," a small plot on the campus where students can exercise their First Amendment speech rights without interference or restriction. The restriction also applied to gathering petition signatures. "Limiting student expression to just 0.1% of the campus was bad enough. Threatening to call police if students were caught gathering signatures for a petition was even worse. The decision to waste taxpayer money defending such unconstitutional censorship was completely indefensible," said Greg Lukianoff, president of the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education.
