(Christian Post) Thomas Nelson Community College along with its umbrella organization, the Virginia Community College System, has agreed to suspend its policy on “free speech zones” in response to a lawsuit brought by a student who wants to preach on campus.

Last month, Christian Parks brought a lawsuit before the Eastern District of Virginia Newport News Division, alleging that TNCC violated his freedom of speech when campus officials stopped him from preaching in an on-campus plaza area.

According to the lawsuit, Parks was prohibited from preaching due to the college’s policy, which states that students can only stage demonstrations if they belong to a student group and get permission four days in advance.
