The saga of a Stanford Law student who came under investigation for making fun of the Federalist Society has made national headlines—and the law school wants no part of it.

Stanford Law faculty and administrators have moved to distance the school from the free-speech brouhaha, clarifying that the investigation into 3L Nicholas Wallace’s creation of a satirical flyer was conducted by the central university—not the law school—and condemning the inquiry. The incident, which went public last week, was covered by The New York Times, The Washington Post, USA Today and many other media outlets.
