The U.S. Supreme Court has declined to hear an appeal in a college free speech case that pitted a conservative newspaper against school administrators at Oregon State University (OSU), letting a lower court’s ruling stand. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled last year that university officials violated the independent paper’s constitutionally protected freedoms when they confiscated and destroyed its distribution bins.
