Won U.S. Courts of Appeals

Speech First v. Shrum

Protecting freedom of conscience for one person or group protects freedom for all of us


Oklahoma State University officials allegedly violated students’ constitutionally protected rights by enforcing vague and overly broad policies that censor students’ speech based on their viewpoints. Speech First filed suit on behalf of its student-members at the university. But the district court required Speech First to reveal those members’ identities if it wanted to proceed with the case.
