Case Overview


A pro-life student group's university approved signs were confiscated by an administrator shortly after students erected their display. The signs contained information regarding fetal development. The students were forced to turn to the university police in order to regain their property because the administrator could not believe the signs could be approved given their "content." Amazingly, the Cornell administration defended this indefensible action, pretending that it was only a misunderstanding that caused the display to be confiscated and removed.
