Campus speech

A federal judge ordered the University of Cincinnati to liberate its “free speech zone,” a small plot on
the campus where students can exercise their First Amendment speech rights without interference or
restriction. The restriction also applied to gathering petition signatures. “Limiting student expression
to just 0.1% of the campus was bad enough. Threatening to call police if students were caught gathering signatures for a petition was even worse. The decision to waste taxpayer money defending such unconstitutional censorship was completely indefensible,” said Greg Lukianoff, president of the
Foundation for Individual Rights in Education.
