Beware the Bias Investigators

Turning Point USA at Grand Valley State University v. The Trustees of Grand Valley State University

Trial Court
Last Updated

Summary

Grand Valley State University in Michigan had a policy that limited speech to two small zones that make up less than 0.03 percent of the campus. University officials told members of the Turning Point USA chapter at the school that they couldn’t talk to other students about the First Amendment and have them write messages on a large beach ball dubbed a “free speech ball” because the members weren’t standing in one of the two zones. Campus police and administrators told the students they would be arrested for trespassing if they didn’t cease their expressive activities.
