Ronald McGuire, a lawyer who took on a student journalism press freedom case almost 18 years ago, is asking a federal appeals court to review en banc the decision over his attorney's fees.
The U.S. Supreme Court declined Monday to review a2007 appellate court ruling that said student government officials could not besued for violating student journalists' First Amendment rights.
NEW YORK -- The Second U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals partially upheld a district court ruling today, finding that a college president did violate the First Amendment when she nullified student elections after the school newspaper published an endorsement for a candidate. The court also remanded the determination of the president's liability to the district court.
