Montclair State University Student Says Gag Order Is Unconstitutional: UPDATED

January 15, 2013

Montclair State University graduate student, Joseph Aziz, was recently suspended for violating a gag order after he made unflattering comments regarding a fellow student on a YouTube video.

UPDATE: Here’s the response from Suzanne Bronski, the director of media relations at Montclair State University:

This matter concerns a student disciplinary matter, and the University does not comment upon individual student discipline because of the responsibilities imposed by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act. The University acted in accordance with its Student Code of Conduct which complies with the New Jersey Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act, and other applicable federal and state regulations.
