The U.S. Supreme Court on Friday declined to review the standard for immunity that shielded Arkansas State University officials who had been sued in a legal dispute over a student's free-speech rights.

The Alliance Defending Freedom in February filed a petition asking the nation's highest court to review a free-speech lawsuit dismissed in 2019.

The Arizona-based conservative advocacy group — which has successfully argued other cases before the U.S. Supreme Court — claimed that questions remained unresolved after the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the dismissal of a lawsuit filed by an ASU student and a chapter of Turning Point USA, a conservative group with chapters at high schools and colleges across the country.
