Minnesota Supreme Court Says U of M Student’s Rights not Violated by Punishment for Facebook Post

20 Jun

According the Syllabus: “The University of Minnesota did not violate the free speech rights of a student enrolled in the Mortuary Science Program by imposing disciplinary sanctions for Facebook posts that violated academic program rules where the academic program rules were narrowly tailored and directly related to established professional conduct standards.”

I have not read the whole decision yet, but you can read the opinion yourself here. The Void previously reported on the Tatro case here.

***Update***

The Student Press Law Center has some great analysis of the case here.
