He's ba-ack. Kenneth Starr, dean of the law school at Pepperdine and author of one of the most unusual pieces of non-fiction pornography of the 1990s, will speak at the Vanderbilt law school on Thursday, 1/25, from noon to 1. His subject will be a case he is preparing to argue before the U.S. Supreme Court later this year. The case has become affectionately known as the "Bong Hits for Jesus" case since it arises from an Alaska school district's expulsion of a student for displaying those words on a banner off
school property. The issue is whether the school's interest in regulating drug-related speech trumps the student's First Amendment rights. Starr—natch—is on the side of the school board, free of charge. Starr's appearance—natch—is being sponsored by Vanderbilt's chapter of the Federalist Society.
