Students Interrogated for Free Speech Event File Lawsuit Against University of South Carolina

Students who were interrogated after holding a free speech event on campus filed a lawsuit Tuesday against the University of South Carolina for violating their First Amendment rights.

Student Ross Abbott and the campus chapters of the Young Americans for Liberty and College Libertarians filed the lawsuit, which challenges a number of the university’s policies—including its free speech zone and the requirement that students register in advance before they can exercise their First Amendment rights.
