Client Story

Summary
Oregon State University officials confiscated the bins of an independent student newspaper, The Liberty, and tossed them onto a trash heap. Officials confiscated the bins, which contained copies of the paper, without notice and threw them next to a dumpster. The university claimed it did so as part of an effort to beautify the campus, but it left untouched the numerous distribution bins of the other student newspaper, The Daily Barometer.
