U.S. 6th Circuit to hear Ky. State Univ. case today

The three-judge panel that will hear the Kentucky State University yearbook and newspaper censorship case today (3/18/99) includes Judges James L. Ryan, Alan E. Norris and R. Guy Cole, Jr.

The case, Kincaid v. Gibson, is scheduled to be heard before the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati this morning. The case stems from the removal of the newspaper adviser and the confiscation of approximately 2,000 copies of the student yearbook by Kentucky State University officials who were upset with grammatical errors, missing photo captions and the yearbook’s appearance. Copies of the yearbook remain locked away to this day.
