Healy v. James, 408 U.S. 169 (1972), was a United States Supreme Court case in which the Court held that Central Connecticut State College's refusal to recognize a campus chapter of Students for a Democratic Society was unconstitutional. The denial of official recognition was found to violate the First Amendment.
The crux of the ruling was that the onus was on the college to provide valid reasons for denial, rather than insisting that the organization provide evidence that their recognition what not be harmful.
