In Major Announcement, FIRE Says It Will Sue Every College With a Speech Code Until Speech Codes Die Forever

Reason reports:
The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education announced a major litigation effort Tuesday against universities that maintain clearly illegal speech codes.

With help from the law firm of Davis Wright Tremaine, FIRE is suing several universities that manifestly and unconstitutionally deprive their students of First Amendment rights.

"Universities' stubborn refusal to relinquish their speech codes must not be tolerated," said FIRE President Greg Lukianoff during a press conference.

For now, suits have been filed against Ohio University, Iowa State University, Chicago State University, and Citrus College in California. These universities have all trampled students' free speech rights, according to FIRE.
Couldn't happen to a nicer bunch. We also suggest students looking into universities practicing racketeering and mail and wire fraud.
