Huge Victory for Christian Speech in Volunteer State
June 01, 2012
Today, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Court published a written opinion invalidating various regulations used by Tennessee Tech University (TTU) to curb Christian-oriented speech on campus. Just to have an opportunity to speak on campus, individuals, like the plaintiff John McGlone, were required to provide an astounding 14 business day advance notice and divulge personal information about themselves as well as the content of their intended discussions. The Sixth Circuit acknowledged the impropriety of these restrictions (striking them down) and forced the entire University of Tennessee System to change how they treat religious speakers on university campuses. Nate Kellum, Chief Counsel for Center for Religious Expression, serves as lead counsel on this precedent-setting case.
