Meriwether v. The Trustees of Shawnee State University

Court: Appellate Court

Status: Active

Last Updated: 6/5/2020

Overview

Summary

Shawnee State University officials have punished a philosophy professor, Dr. Nicholas Meriwether, because he declined a male student’s demand to be referred to as a woman, with feminine titles and pronouns (“Miss,” “she,” etc.) Although Dr. Meriwether offered to use the student’s first or last name instead, neither the student nor the university was willing to accept that compromise, choosing instead to force the professor to speak and act contrary to his own Christian convictions.
