When I began the process of looking for a plaintiff to sue the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech), I had hoped to see the day that a federal court would throw out the universitys unconstitutional speech code. The code went so far as to prohibit any speech that would "malign" another individual -- whatever that means.
Now, three months after a suit has been filed against Georgia Tech, the school has enacted a new speech code. This one prohibits any speech that is threatening, harassing, intimidating, or "otherwise injurious." The new code is entirely too broad. That is why the suit will proceed as planned.
Under their first illegal speech code, Georgia Tech created a remarkably poisonous atmosphere for free expression by punishing two students -- Ruth Malhotra and Orit Sklar, the co-plaintiffs in the case -- for engaging in constitutionally protected political protest. But now Georgia Tech officials are making matters worse by standing aside as their students create entire organizations designed to malign individual students; namely, the two aforementioned co-plaintiffs.

Actually the way to go about protesting this law is to find someone on campus making statements that offend Americans, such as flag burning, or offensive to Christians, which shouldn't be hard to do. Then file a complaint saying you are offended, threatened, harassed, or whatever is a violation of this speech code. Should be interesting then.

Georgia Institute of Technology? What was wrong with Georgia Tech? I guess it rhymes with heck or maybe even red'neck.
