PostSubject: Settlement forces despicable college that jailed student for passing out Constitutions to ditch policies   Thu Jan 25, 2018 3:16 am

Judge compared its policies to ‘1984’
Kellogg Community College in Michigan jailed a student for passing out pocket copies of the Constitution on campus.
An administrator said that students from “rural farm areas … might not feel like they have the choice to ignore” the supposed solicitation by the nascent Young Americans for Liberty chapter.
A year after chapter leaders sued the public institution for violating their First Amendment rights – during which the school refused to change its policies and drew the public ire of Attorney General Jeff Sessions – Kellogg has finally capitulated.
In a settlement made public Wednesday, Kellogg agreed to ditch the policies under which it arrested and jailed YAL leader Michelle Gregoire and threatened to arrest fellow leader Brandon Withers.
It also pledged to grant a 12-month “provisional recognition” to the chapter and pay Gregoire $7,000 in damages and $48,000 to her lawyers at the Alliance Defending Freedom.
The alliance wasn’t happy with what it called “insufficient” changes Kellogg made after a federal judge indicated he thought its policies were unconstitutional.
U.S. District Judge Robert Jonker blew threw the college’s meager defense at the Aug. 10 hearing, comparing its policies to “the Orwellian 1984”:
Quote :
Well, tell me — unless you can tell me there’s something that compels me to — you know, like a controlling authority, don’t talk too much about other cases right now. How do you defend that? I mean, do you really want to be in the paper saying “Yeah, we arrest people who pass out Constitutions on our campus without our prior permission”? I mean, that’s your optics. That’s a terrible optical position for you to be in, isn’t it? …
They were passing out Constitutions without your prior permission and they got arrested for it.
