Candler v. Jenkins

Beware the Bias Investigators


In October 2012, a student at Louisiana State University decided she wanted to participate in the Pro-Life Day of Silent Solidarity by distributing written materials. After asking where on campus she could hand out literature, the university informed her that she could only do so in “Free Speech Alley,” which is approximately 1,000 square feet of the university’s entire 650 acres. The university also told her that she had to register with the Office of Campus Life prior to distributing any literature to ensure that others had not already reserved the limited spaces in the speech zone.
