Supreme Court Will Hear Arguments Today In College Speech Policy Case

The U.S. Supreme Court hears oral arguments this morning in Uzuegbunam v. Preczewski. The case grows out of a challenge to Georgia Gwinnett College's speech policies that led to a student being stopped from distributing religious literature on campus. Subsequently, the school changed its policies.  The U.S. 11th Circuit Court of Appeals held that the change mooted plaintiff's claim for nominal damages. (See prior posting.) The 10:00 am oral arguments may be viewed live at this link. I will update this post to include a link to the written transcript of the arguments when it becomes available later today. SCOTUSblog's case page contains links to all the briefs filed in the case. Colorado Politics reports on the decisions.

UPDATE: Here are links to the transcript and audio of the oral arguments.
