FIRE Victory

As part of its ongoing Speech Code Litigation project, FIRE supported a lawsuit against State University of New York at Brockport. The suit, which was settled in May of 2005, required the school to repeal its unconstitutional policies and publicize the changes in policy through official channels such as the newspaper and college handbooks. Representing the fourth victory for FIRE's Speech Code Litigation, the settlement was part of an ongoing process to combat speech codes throughout the country.
