This note examines the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan decision invalidating the University of Michigan's racial harassment policy. The issue facing the court was one of first impression and was whether a university may adopt a racial harassment policy designed to protect harassment and intimidation on the basis of race, without infringing upon an individuals' first amendment rights to free speech and expression. This Note examines the court's decision invalidating the policy and ultimately concludes that such decision was mandated by the University's enforcement of the policy.
