Hosty v. Carter (2005)

 
IssueDoes Hazelwood School District v. Kuhlmeier (1988) either authorize an official of a public university to impose a viewpoint-based system of prior restraint on a newspaper produced by adult students outside the university’s educational curriculum, or limit the otherwise clearly established right of adult university students to be free from such a system of prior restraint in the publication of such a newspaper? Does the doctrine of qualified immunity prevent personal liability as against the college administrator?
