University sued for targeting Christian students over marriage beliefs
The University of Idaho College of Law has been sued for actions it took against students who expressed their religious belief in support of the biblical definition of marriage as one man and one woman.
Alliance Defending Freedom filed the First Amendment lawsuit on behalf of three Christian law students at the university, Peter Perlot, Mark Miller and Ryan Alexander, who are members of the Christian Legal Society.
The lawsuit alleged that the public university’s Office of Civil Rights and Investigations issued no-contact orders to the CLS members, which effectively prevented the plaintiffs from communicating with any student peers and restricted them from certain locations on campus.
The university justified their issuance of the no-contact orders through their Title IX Sexual Harassment Policy and their Code of Conduct and Disciplinary Policies due to the content and viewpoint of the plaintiffs’ religious beliefs.
The students have expressed that the no-contact orders are a cause of “great stress and anxiety” and are now fearful that any expression of their religious beliefs will lead to further punishment and negatively impact their future careers.
The lawsuit named university officials, including the president of the university, the dean of students, and the director and deputy director of the investigation office.
The university told The College Fix it does “not comment on pending legislation” but in general, “no contact orders are not disciplinary or punitive,” spokesperson Jodi Walker said via email. “They are administrative actions under Title IX.”
The no-contact orders came as a result of complaints from students who took issue with their peers’ opposition to same-sex unions being considered as equal to heterosexual marriages.
The students were not given a chance to review the allegations or defend themselves.
