10th Circuit rejects UNM student’s First Amendment claim over anti-lesbian essay

At the end of March, the Tenth Circuit rejected a student’s claim that the University of New Mexico and two of its employees violated her First Amendment rights by actions they took in response to an essay she wrote criticizing lesbianism.

The opinion is Pompeo v. Board of Regents of the University of New Mexico, written by Judge Lucero. I previously wrote about this case here.

Although now-Justice Neil Gorsuch was on the panel for this case, he did not attend the oral argument, nor did he participate in writing the decision.
