Attorneys representing a Georgia Gwinnett College student and a former student announced Monday they are continuing a legal fight against the Lawrenceville-based college over free speech rights.

Alliance Defending Freedom said it has filed an appeal of a federal court’s dismissal of a free speech lawsuit against GGC. A U.S. District Court recently dismissed the case as moot because the college changed its policies on how people are allowed to speak publicly on campus.
