One quick but important clarification of those articles: FIRE is not representing the plaintiffs in the lawsuit, but rather worked to coordinate the lawsuit that was filed yesterday by the Alliance Defense Fund (ADF). This is the modus operandi of FIRE’s Speech Codes Litigation Project: FIRE coordinates litigation—filed by cooperating attorneys from FIRE’s Legal Network—in defense of the First Amendment, in an effort to end the scourge of unconstitutional speech codes on public campuses. In this case, ADF filed the lawsuit and represents the plaintiffs.
