Oyama v. Univ. of Hawaii, 13-16524

In a case alleging free speech and due process violations in the denial of plaintiff's application to become a student teacher, the district court's grant of summary judgment to defendant-university is affirmed where the university's decision directly related to defined and established professional standards, was narrowly tailored to serve the university's core mission, reflected reasonable professional judgment, and followed adequate procedural protections.
