Questions presented for review:
- Whether the Sixth Circuit contravened this Court’s longstanding First Amendment jurisprudence, creating a split between the circuits in the process, by holding that it was not “clearly established” for qualified immunity purposes that the First Amendment protects speech from content-based viewpoint discrimination simply because the speech is online and made by a university student, where the speech has not created a substantial disruption in the learning environment.
- Whether the Sixth Circuit contravened the well- settled precedent of this Court, creating a split between the circuits in the process, by holding that a university administrator is entitled to qualified immunity if she restricts a student’s speech on the basis that there might be some hitherto unrecognized exception to the First Amendment’s guarantee of free speech.
- Whether the Sixth Circuit disregarded the precedent set forth by this Court in holding it was not “clearly established” for qualified immunity purposes that a waiver of a university student’s free speech rights under the First Amendment cannot be implied by any document received by the student in the ordinary course of her studies, if that document does not clearly and unambiguously state such a waiver.
All of this because the University of Louisville got butthurt over a MySpace (remember when that was still a thing?) comment.
Wasted tax dollars galore.
This is getting fun.
