University of Michigan Bias Response Sued

, Malcolm A. Kline, Leave a comment

When university policies are tested off campus, they usually don’t fare too well. Let’s see how far this one goes.

“The new free speech advocacy organization Speech First announced Tuesday that it is suing the University of Michigan on behalf of three students who object to the campus’s broad disciplinary code and bias response team,” Robby Soave reports on the blog. “These campus policies imperil students’ First Amendment rights and chill free expression on campus, the lawsuit contends.”

Speech codes usually are contentious. That’s why universities don’t call them that anymore.
