This afternoon, Jason Antebi took the next step in his continuing struggle for justice against his alma mater, Occidental College.
Jason’s Petition for Review was filed with the California Supreme Court hours ago, formally requesting the state’s highest court to review the decision of the California Court of Appeal. The lower court’s opinion was marred by mistakes of law that, if allowed to stand, would eviscerate the state’s “Leonard Law,” which guarantees First Amendment protections to students at private universities.
FIRE has stood by Jason’s side since for more than two years now, and will proudly continue to do so until justice is served. To that end, FIRE is busy assembling an amicus coalition in support of Jason’s Petition.
