Campus Free Speech

Two Students Sue U Delaware For Banning Sale of "U Can Suck Our D" Shirts

It's a civil rights case their attorney argues


Two University of Delaware students are charging in a federal lawsuit that the school violated their right to free speech because officials would not let them sell T-shirts at homecoming imprinted with a slang phrase commonly used to heckle opposing teams.

"This is a civil rights case. My clients' freedom of expression under the First Amendment is being repressed by the threat of academic disciplinary proceedings," said attorney David Finger.
