College Newspaper Advertising

Filed a friend-of-the-court brief, joining with The Thomas Jefferson Center, in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, arguing that a Virginia regulation forbidding college newspapers from running ads for alcoholic beverages is unconstitutional.  The brief argues that the lower court should have applied strict scrutiny, rather than the less-stringent commercial speech standard, because the issue is not what advertisers of alcohol are allowed to say, but what newspapers are allowed to say.  The regulation strips the Collegiate Times (Virginia Tech) and Cavalier Daily (University of Virginia) of full editorial discretion, and thus is unconstitutional.  [2012]
