Papish v. Board of Curators, 410 U.S. 667 (1973)
Papish v. Board of Curators of the University of Missouri
Decided March 19, 1973
410 U.S. 667
Expulsion of student for distributing on campus a publication assertedly containing "indecent speech" proscribed by a bylaw of a state university's Board of Curators held an impermissible violation of her First Amendment free speech rights, since the mere dissemination of ideas on a state university campus cannot be proscribed in the name of "conventions of decency."
Certiorari granted; 464 F.2d 136, reversed.
