Last week, a federal court in Ohio issued a preliminary injunction prohibiting the University of Cincinnati (UC) from enforcing its unconstitutional policy of limiting expressive activity on campus to a free speech zone roughly the size of a postage stamp. I joke, but the free speech zone was tiny, covering only 0.1% of the university campus. Indeed, UC’s free speech zone earned the university a spot atop FIRE’s 2012 list of the 12 worst colleges for free speech in the nation.
FIRE Director of Legal and Public Advocacy Will Creeley has written an article for The Huffington Post about this important victory for student rights. Check out the full article for his analysis of the case and what it means for campus free speech moving forward.
