Young Americans for Liberty v. Kellogg Community College

Summary

A student and several associates at Kellogg Community College were passing out copies of the U.S. Constitution and collecting signatures of other students who were interested in joining the new chapter of Young Americans for Liberty when campus officials demanded that they cease their activity since they did not obtain a permit and were not conducting their expressive activity at an information table inside the Student Union (the lone location where it is permitted). When the students refused to surrender their First Amendment rights, campus officials arrested Michelle Gregoire and two of her associates and jailed them for over seven hours. ADF filed a lawsuit, and the case is ongoing.
