Washington D.C., Jan 13, 2021 / 01:01 pm (CNA).- A Christian student seeking symbolic damages against a Georgia college that had restricted the area where he could try to evangelize saw his case go before the U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday.
“Colleges and universities are supposed to be places where we are free to explore and debate ideas, but my college silenced me and are getting away with it,” Chike Uzuegbunam said Jan. 12. “Now that they have heard my story, I am hopeful that the Supreme Court will affirm my rights and the rights of all Americans, and that courts should hold officials accountable for violating our constitutional rights.”
Kristen Waggoner, Alliance Defending Freedom General Counsel, represented Uzuegbunam in U.S. Supreme Court arguments Jan. 12. The case is known as Uzuegbunam v. Preczewski.
