The Missouri Miner, the student newspaper at the University of Missouri-Rolla, is threatening to sue the university for violation of the First and Fourteenth Amendments, saying budget cuts to the paper constitute illegal censorship.
Editor in Chief Christopher Stryker and former editor in chief and Advertising Director Michele Martin, sent a letter to the university Monday, according to Rolla Daily News today. Accompanying the letter was a legal opinion from the Student Press Law Center, supporting the Miner's argument that the funding cut amounted to censorship.
