Kincaid v. Gibson: Hazelwood Goes to College.
Sandmann, Warren G.
The purpose of this paper is threefold: first, it reviews the Supreme Court decision in "Hazelwood," one of the prime cases in reducing student speech rights; next, it looks at the legal history of "Kincaid," a series of cases that appears to be on the verge of applying the restrictions on high school student speech announced in "Hazelwood" to college and university students; and finally, it looks briefly at a separate series of cases, "Urofsky," that are creating restrictions on faculty expression at state college and universities. Overall, the tone and message of the paper is that courts are appearing more and more willing to restrict expression rights in deference to the wishes of majorities, embodied as school authorities at the high school or college level, or legislatures at the college and university level.
