Uzuegbunam v. Preczewski

Court: U.S. Supreme Court

Status: Active

Last Updated: 7/29/2020



Georgia Gwinnett College’s speech policies previously forbid any expression “which disturbs the peace and/or comfort of person(s)” and restricted speech to two tiny speech zones that made up less than 0.0015 percent of campus and were open only 18 hours per week. School officials used the policies to censor a student, Chike Uzuegbunam, from speaking about his Christian faith. Although the college changed its policies after they were challenged in court, two federal courts declined to address whether college officials violated the students’ constitutionally protected freedoms.
