Bias Reporting Systems

April 17, 2024

Speech First, a civil-rights organization that focuses on free-speech issues, has secured a decisive settlement in Speech First v. Shrum et al. after Oklahoma State University (OSU) unconstitutionally chilled student speech.

Under the settlement agreement, OSU officials have agreed to make significant policy changes on campus.

Under the settlement agreement, OSU will end and disband their Bias Response Team on campus, end their current harassment policy that targets constitutionally protected speech, allow Speech First to rewrite their harassment policy to bolster speech protection for students, change their computer policy that previously forbade students from sending emails about politics, and pay $18,000 in attorneys’ fees to Speech First.
