The Extremist

The civil right not to be civil

A U.S. District Court judge in Cali-
fornia ruled earlier this month that
it was unconstitutional for Califor-
nia State University to punish stu-
dents based on a clause in its code of
conduct requiring that students be
"civil" to one another. The rule had
been used in one instance to justify
discipline for members of the College
Republicans who stamped on flags
displaying Allah's name during a pro-
test against extremist Islamic terror-
ist groups.
The CalState system has argued
that the decisions against students
were also based on allegations of hate
speech or intimidation, which are not
defended by the First Amendment.
A similar code at the University of
Michigan was struck down in a 1989
case.
