An article in The Evening Bulletin yesterday highlights FIRE’s latest case in its highly successful speech codes litigation project, an effort to rid universities of unconstitutional speech regulations. Organized by FIRE, the Alliance Defense Fund and the San Francisco State University (SFSU) College Republicans are suing SFSU for a violation of the College Republicans’ First Amendment rights. Last year, SFSU put the College Republicans through a five-month trial for stepping on Hamas and Hezbollah flags during an anti-terrorism rally. The lawsuit also targets several policies that unconstitutionally restrict protected speech.
