A federal judge has directed officials [1] at Chicago State University not to interfere with the operations of a faculty blog that has been highly critical of the administration. Chicago State has tried in recent years to shut down [2] or otherwise silence [3] The Faculty Voice, which regularly criticizes university officials. Two faculty members responsible for the blog sued the university last year with the help of the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, and while the ruling does not weigh in on the merits of their case, it does ensure that they won’t be punished while they pursue their case.
