10th Circuit denies rehearing in case involving student essay that criticized lesbianism

I am reliably informed that the Tenth Circuit has denied the petition for rehearing en banc filed by a student who sued the University of New Mexico for First Amendment violations as a result of actions allegedly taken against her after she submitted an essay critical of lesbianism in one of her classes.

The Tenth Circuit issued its panel opinion in Pompeo v. Board of Regents of the University of New Mexico last month. I previously wrote about the case here and here.
