Cases

Uzuegbunam v. Preczewski

Summary

Chike Uzuegbunam is a student at Georgia Gwinnett College who sought to share his faith with his peers by handing out pamphlets at a plaza on campus. A security guard and librarian said he was not permitted to do this because he was outside the speech zone. Chike then followed school policy to reserve the speech zone, but campus security again silenced him because other students complained. In fact, the University even classified his speech as “disorderly conduct.” ADF filed a lawsuit in March 2017, and the matter is ongoing.
