An Iowa State University student filed suit against school officials last week over “harassment” policies which actually say that “engaging in First Amendment protected speech activities” may be punished as “harassment.”
Iowa State University officials confirmed that if student Robert Dunn or any other student declines to certify that he will comply with these policies, his graduation may be placed on hold. The policies could cover “activities which, although not severe, persistent, or pervasive enough to meet the legal definition of harassment, are unacceptable…” and explain that even “First Amendment protected speech activities” may constitute harassment “depending on the circumstances.”
Casey Mattox, senior counsel for Alliance Defending Freedom is on the team representing the student suing ISU, and joins Freedom Matters to talk about this assault on free speech.
