Victory: Syracuse University Drops Allegations Against Student Blogger
Syracuse University College of Law (SUCOL) has dropped its prosecution of law student Len Audaer more than three months after threatening him with severe punishment for "harassment" over his role in a fake-news parody blog about life in law school. "Independent prosecutor" and SUCOL professor Gregory Germain had threatened Audaer with expulsion over satire posted anonymously on the blog, SUCOLitis, without ever revealing what expression in particular justified the charges or even who was charging him. Audaer came to the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) for help.
Thanks to the many FIRE supporters who wrote to Syracuse on behalf of liberty!
