Volokh On the Free Speech of UConn Law Student Arrested For Email Rants

University of Connecticut law student Anna Bargh has been arrested, apparently for a couple of emails she sent to a number of people on the subject of the hiring of the next UConn law dean. In one email, she said:

"Let’s celebrate diversity by having the next dean NOT be Jewish”.

 

Ms. Bargh was arrested for breach of the peace and harassment. Eugene Volokh analyzes the issues at the Volokh Conspiracy here. More here from the Hartford Courant.
