Professors Sue University in Blog Case

Two professors at Chicago State University recently filed a lawsuit against the University, claiming that officials illegally targeted the CSU Faculty Voice blog.  The two professors state in their federal lawsuit that they are the founders of the blog, where they and other contributors post about University policies and issues.  The professors acknowledge that their postings are often critical of the University, and claim that the University has "engaged in an ongoing campaign to silence" their right to free speech.  They also claim that the University's actions against the bloggers amount to "cyberbullying" against the University's policy that protects students.  The professors claim that the University sent a cease and desist letter demanding that the bloggers remove copyrighted material, and demanded that the blog remove the University's name and images.
