Federal Judge Rules Against TTU Free Speech Zone

A federal judge says Texas Tech cannot require students to make public speeches in special free speech zones.

Former law student Jason Roberts sued Tech last year claiming it was unconstitutional for students to be restricted to one area of campus to express their views. Last Thursday, Judge Sam Cummings agreed.

Cummings also ruled that Roberts was not denied his constitutional rights to free speech, because he still was allowed to speak on campus.
