Conservative Student Journalist’s Lawsuit Against U of I Proceeds to Federal Court | BizPac Review

BizPac Review: In November 2017, three student journalists were disciplined for reporting on a campus protest that resulted in a graduate student instructor assaulting the journalists and damaging one’s property. After the altercation, the students were issued restraining orders in an effort to prevent them from reporting on anarcho-communist instructor, Tariq Khan. The case, which is a First Amendment lawsuit, accuses the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign of infringing on the rights of the student journalists, and is now headed to Federal court.
