WTF Marquette?

Marquette University has suspended a Dental School student for the rest of the semester for posts made on his blog about other Marquette students and faculty. The student will have to repeat the semester and forfeits the tuition he already paid to attend fall classes.

1832 has joined efforts with Marquette prof and conservative blogger John McAdams to create a petition calling for the student to be fully reinstated to the university and for any penalties to be waived.

The student's lawyer has filed an appeal, and the student has been readmitted to classes pending the outcome. 1832 and McAdams plan to deliver the petition to the MU administration prior to Friday's appeal deadline.

Take a moment to support the free speech rights of students by signing the petition.

Ditto to signing it.

Those guys at MU seem to have forgotten about a little something called the First Amendment.
