Oral Arguments Today in SFSU Case

October 31, 2007

Oral arguments in the San Francisco State University (SFSU) College Republicans’ lawsuit against the university will be taking place today at 1:30 PT (4:30 ET) in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, Oakland Division. The College Republicans are asking the court to enjoin SFSU from enforcing several unconstitutional speech codes on campus.

Torch readers may remember that after the College Republicans were dragged through a protracted investigation and hearing for engaging in constitutionally protected expression, they brought a lawsuit (the latest suit in FIRE’s Speech Codes Litigation Project) challenging not only the university’s violation of their First Amendment rights, but also the constitutionality of several speech codes at SFSU.

Stay tuned for a bigger update on this case tomorrow.
