Greg took to the pages of The Wall Street Journal this weekend with an op-ed titled Campus Clampdowns on Free Speech Flunk Their Legal Tests.” Greg writes about the recent decision by a federal jury in Georgia to hold a former college president personally liable for $50,000 for violating the Constitutional rights of student Hayden Barnes, and discusses how, thanks to legal factors and five years of work by FIRE, this case may help end the decades-long scandal of speech codes on our nation’s college campuses. Those that have read Unlearning Liberty will recall that the story of Barnes’ case was what Greg used to open up the book.
