A question for the Supreme Court


Attention constitutional lawyers: As someone who’s been brought up on Title IX complaints twice – the first time for writing an essay, the second time for writing a book about being brought up on Title IX complaints for writing an essay – I’m waiting for the legal challenge on behalf of the thousands of similarly accused professors and students prohibited by their colleges and universities, as per Department of Education gag orders, from speaking about their own Title IX cases, lest “retaliation” charges be brought.

How can an “Education” department prohibit speech? Perhaps someone should ask the Supreme Court this very question.
