Citrus College: Speech Code Litigation

Category: Free Speech
Schools: Citrus College

NOTE: This case is NOT in conjunction with FIRE’s Stand Up For Speech Litigation Project. If you are attempting to find information about the 2014 litigation against Citrus College, you may find it here.

In 2003, at California’s Citrus College, under the pressure of litigation and FIRE’s national campaign for campus constitutional rights, the Board of Trustees voted to rescind most of the speech codes at the public institution. This was the first victory in FIRE’s declared war on speech codes at public colleges and universities.
