Supreme Court backs Georgia student in case over free speech

Supreme Court backs Georgia student in case over free speech

The US Supreme Court sided with Chike Uzuegbunam, a former Georgia college student, in an 8–1 ruling and allowed him to pursue nominal damages in a lawsuit against school officials who stopped him from distributing Christian flyers in a free-speech zone on campus. Only Chief Justice John Roberts voted in dissent, who also accused his fellow Supreme Court judges of acting as ’advice columnists.’

Only an person who truly hated liberty would consider passing out flyers in a free speech zone as something that shouldn't be permitted. Students have a right to hold their own opinions, and to share them freely, just like any other American.

“Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. dissented, saying the case should be dismissed as moot because the students no longer attend the school.”... Terribly sorry Mr. Chief Justice, that the justice system moves so slow that the students actually grew up and graduated before the case got to you. Just because they aren’t students any longer doesn’t mean they didn’t have their first amendment rights violated. I didn’t know there was an “expiration date” on the Constitution of the United States! You may be the biggest disappointment as a Chief Justice since the Warren Burger court. Fixed it. CH

The ENTIRE COUNTRY is a free-speech zone. If you have to establish one on a university, that university is anti-freedom.

A brief gleam of the New York Times article, The Supreme Court only said they’d take the case, even though the amount asked for in damages was only $1 and the college already changed their policy to allow the man to speak on campus. The suit is over the fact that the free speech zones did not allow him to speak freely, as that was technically disorderly conduct. Hopefully this case sets some good precedent, but we’ll have to wait until the actual ruling.

Good. And I am an atheist. Also, it is scary that there are designated "free speech zones" to begin with. I understand not handing things out or talking in class or outside a dorm room when people are trying to sleep, but the world in general should be a "free speech zone".

Excellent news. Students should absolutely be allowed to sue colleges who violate their right to speak freely.

Why isn’t there a discussion about the legality of “free speech zones” in public universities and colleges?

Are we not going to talk about the concept of a “free speech zone”? Our rights only count in specific areas now?
