Academic freedom advocates say the U.S. Naval Academy might have infringed on the free speech rights of a professor who says he was recently suspended after students complained about his criticism of the school’s sexual assault policies. Bruce Fleming, an English professor at the Naval Academy (USNA), was barred from teaching his classes or contacting students at the beginning of last week as the English department investigated complaints by two students. Fleming was permitted to return to his classes last Wednesday.
