FIRE Examines Latest on OCR, University of Montana in ‘Chicago Daily Law Bulletin’

By September 19, 2013

In a piece published yesterday by the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin, I write about the latest developments involving the Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR) and the University of Montana. Following the issuance of the controversial May 9 “blueprint,” OCR has stalled its approval of the University of Montana’s new sexual harassment policy. As FIRE’s press release last week noted, this is frustrating given that the new policy appears to have addressed some of the First Amendment concerns raised by FIRE and many others over the federal blueprint. My op-ed is available to subscribers of the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin. If you are a subscriber, please check it out on the main page, under the “Letter to the Editor” section.
