Christian Student Silenced By School Gets Massive Payday

A college student will receive a massive settlement from his school after it tried to silence him from speaking about his faith, according to a Wednesday press release from Alliance Defending Freedom.

Georgia Gwinnett College settled with Chike Uzuegbunam for $80,000 six years after the lawsuit was first filed, which alleged that the school repeatedly denied him the right to speak about his Christian faith to other students, the press release said.

The college told Uzuegbunam he had to use the free speech zones on campus with permission from the college in order to speak about his faith, the lawsuit stated. After acquiring one of the zones, Uzuegbunam was asked by the college to stop because he had prompted complaints and the college wished to appease students “who were or might be offended by his expression.”” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener
“Chike Uzuegbunam’s case and this settlement illustrate the priceless nature of our constitutional rights,” Travis Barham, senior counsel at Alliance Defending Freedom told The Daily Caller News Foundation.”With this settlement, not only has the College’s dodging finally ended, and not only has Chike received the justice he has long deserved, but other colleges and universities are on notice that if they violate their students’ liberties, they can expect consequences.”

The U.S. Supreme court ruled in March 2021 that the government officials should be held accountable in Uzuegbunam’s case. In a separate December 2021 ruling, a federal district court ruled the college administration must also be held accountable, the press release stated.

Georgia Gwinnett College did not immediately respond to TheDCNF’s request for comment. Chike Uzuegbunam could not be reached for comment.
