Missouri University Countersues Professor Who Challenged Campus Carry Ban

posted on April 19, 2016

Last September, University of Missouri Associate Professor Royce de R. Barondes filed a lawsuit against the school seeking to overturn its policy banning firearms on campus. Barondes, a tenured professor who has taught business and corporate law at the Columbia school since 2002, argued that the policy violated federal and state rights. 

The suit named University of Missouri President Tim Wolfe as defendant and invoked both the Second Amendment and a Missouri measure passed in 2014 that affirms the right to bear arms as “unalienable.” 

Attorneys for the school have since taken an aggressive approach to the lawsuit and have had the case moved to federal court. Barondes’ attorney Jennifer Bukowsky says this is slowing the case down and increasing costs. She notes that Barondes is dropping his Second Amendment claims in an effort to bring the case back to state court.
