GVSU’s campus free-speech case part of a nationwide movement

In December, a student group at Grand Valley State University criticized the university’s Free Speech Zone Policy in a federal lawsuit for limiting free-speech activities to “two small speech zones” on campus and asking students to seek permission to express themselves. In March, GVSU reached a settlement with the student group by agreeing to pay the legal fees and costs of the group totaling $11,025.
