SPEECH FIRST V. SHRUM, ET. AL

January 10, 2023

Recent Activity: Friday, February 9th, 2024: Tenth Circuit Decision

Case Launched: January 10th, 2023: (United States District Court for the Western District of Oklahoma)

Issue Being Challenged:

  • Code of Conduct and Harassment Policy
  • Computer Appropriate Use Policy
  • Bias Related Incidents Policy 

“Oklahoma State’s policies regarding their bias response team, harassment policy, and computer policy are clearly designed to monitor, investigate, and restrict student speech all together. The fact that students can’t even express an opinion without worrying that another student can use one of these policies to report them shows us that the school’s administrators have no interest in encouraging students to engage in the robust exchange of ideas nor in protecting students’ rights.”
