FIRE in the Wall Street Journal: ‘Campus Clampdowns on Free Speech Flunk Their Legal Tests’

By February 15, 2013

WSJ LogoFIRE President Greg Lukianoff took to the pages of The Wall Street Journal this weekend with an op-ed titled "Campus Clampdowns on Free Speech Flunk Their Legal Tests." Greg writes about the recent decision by a federal jury in Georgia to hold a former college president personally liable for $50,000 for violating the Constitutional rights of student Hayden Barnes, and discusses how, thanks to legal factors and five years of work by FIRE, this case may help end the decades-long scandal of speech codes on our nation’s college campuses.
