SD: Evangelist files free speech lawsuit against Mines

Rapid City Journal: The Center for Religious Expression, a Memphis, Tenn., based nonprofit, filed the lawsuit on Gavin’s behalf. The lawsuit names Acting President Duane Hrncir, Vice President of Student Affairs Patricia Mahon and Surbeck Center Director Stephanie Lindsley as defendants. The center’s chief counsel, Nate Kellum, said Gavin is not selling phones or credit cards and that being confined to a table infringes on his rights. “It is not conducive to his type of speech,” Kellum said. “They are classifying his speech as commercial speech, and it is not.”
