BIG BREAKING NEWS – CHRISTIAN GROUP SUIT FILED AGAINST UNIVERSITY: Challenging rules that require students to obtain permit to speak on campus [#UniversityOfAlabama #AllianceDefendingFreedom] 5/25
A conservative Christian group has filed suit against the University of Alabama, challenging rules that require students to obtain a permit to speak on campus days in advance.
Filed by the campus chapter of Alliance Defending Freedom and 2 student members in state court, the civil lawsuit claims the rule violates a state law which requires public college and universities to respect students’ rights to free speech.
A campus rule requires students to request permission to speak on campus at least 5 days in advance, according to the complaint.
The requirement prevents members from engaging fellow students on important topics including gun control and federalism.
