Court restores students’ free-speech lawsuit against AZ Board of Regents – Phoenix Business Journal
The appellate court decision by Judge Richard Paez said that individual board members are not immune and that a state agency can be sued to prevent future violations of constitutional rights. Paez said the students “properly alleged a First Amendment retaliation claim” in their lawsuit.
Current ABOR members who appear, based on minutes of the Feb 7-8, 2013 meeting, to have voted for the action that is overturned by this decision include:
Rick Myers, Greg Patterson, Jay Heiler (currently chairman), Ram Krishna, and LuAnn Leonard.
Congratulations to Steven Montoya, Esq, and the Arizona Students Association.
