Spam charges dropped for MSU student

We’re happy to report that MSU has removed it’s charge of “spamming” against student government leader Kara Spencer.  Electronic Frontier Foundation’s Legal Director Cindy Cohn said,

We’re pleased that MSU has reversed course and will not only drop the charge against Ms. Spencer, but will reconsider its flawed policies. When a school’s anti-spam policy requires students to get approval before they discuss school policy with school officials, it has plainly left the realm of protecting against spam and has violated the Constitution.

FIRE initiatiated an open letter to MSU officials, which was signed by EFF, NCAC. Read the letter here.
