Free Speech Zones At LA Community Colleges Triggers 1st Amendment Suit – Brentwood, CA Patch

Kevin Shaw, 27, contends the Woodland Hills community college violated his civil rights when he was barred from passing out copies of the U.S. Constitution because he wasnt in the free speech zone — an outdoor area roughly the size of three parking spaces — and because he hadnt applied in advance to use it.While not commenting directly on the lawsuit filed in Los Angeles federal court, an LACCD spokesman said the district backs the free speech rights of its students.”The Los Angeles Community College District firmly stands behind every students right to free expression,” Yusef Robb said. “We have no further comment on the lawsuit at this time.”
