 American Association of University Professors v. Central State University   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
On May 17, 1995, AAUP filed a complaint for declaratory judgment and injunctive relief, and a motion for a preliminary injunction pursuant to Civ.R. 65(B), alleging that R.C. 3345.45 violates the Equal Protection Clauses of the Ohio and United States Constitutions, and Section 1, Article I of the Ohio Constitution.
Although AAUP seeks to defend the reasoning of the court of appeals, its primary focus is on arguing that the rationales advanced in support of R.C. 3345.45 cannot withstand any level of equal protection scrutiny.
AAUP argues that by framing the issue to be whether the Dayton exclusion "bears a fair and substantial relation to the object of the Public Employees Collective Bargaining Act," we actually applied an intermediate level of scrutiny.

 FrontPage magazine.com :: American Association of University Professors: Lobby for the Left by Nathan Giller
The American Association of University Professors (AAUP), which claims to represent around 45,000 "academic professionals" (including librarians) at the nation's institutions of higher learning and whose official motto is "Academic Freedom for a Free Society," is a notably significant exception.
And for a good reason: the AAUP is the Beltway voice of the tenured, Left-leaning academia and its principal defender in the court of public opinion against attacks by conservative critics, be it on the issues of patriotism, political bias, or affirmative action.
Also notable in the post-9/11 environment is the AAUP's opposition to the First Amendment freedom of college students (and outside observers) to bring to public attention the biases of their professors.

 Illinois Chapter of the American Association of University Professors - News
The American Association of University Professors called it “a grave threat to fundamental principles of academic freedom.”; Yet both the media and the politicians have overlooked the serious flaws in Horowitz’s studies of alleged bias in higher education, and his own statements proposing to sharply narrow academic freedom.
So then and there — in front of her and the university official — I ripped down her sign.” Congress is telling the world’s leading colleges to take lessons on academic freedom and diversity from someone who destroys signs that criticize him and then brags about it.
Horowitz has repeatedly expressed his belief that universities cannot be reformed from within, and faculty and administrators cannot be trusted: “If there is to be reform, it will have to come from other quarters.” His claim that the provisions of the Academic Bill of Rights will be purely voluntary, therefore, cannot be believed.

The negative effects of the increased use of contingent faculty appointments on academic freedom, undergraduate education and academic collegiality are also discussed in the draft policy.
