Alabama Supreme Court hears Young Americans for Liberty college student free speech case

A campus free speech case brought by a conservative student group at the University of Alabama at Huntsville was heard before the Alabama Supreme Court Thursday.

The case is the first challenge brought under a 2019 state law that prohibits university policies from restricting “spontaneous speech” and from limiting speech activities to specific areas of campus.

In July 2021, the UAH Young Americans for Liberty chapter and student member Joshua Greer filed a lawsuit against the university and UA System, claiming that its new campus speech policy was in violation of state law.
