Speech First, a nationwide free speech organization, filed a federal lawsuit May 29 in the U.S. District Court of Southern District of Indiana against IU President Pamela Whitten, IU Board of Trustees and many IU administrators challenging the university’s “bias incident” reporting system.  

The lawsuit alleges the university is violating students’ First and 14th Amendments. In a press release, Speech First wrote the bias incident policy is designed to “deter, discourage and otherwise prevent students from expressing disfavored views.”
