A retiree in North Carolina has a constitutional right to speak about math, in public, according to a ruling from a federal judge, Richard Myers.

His opinion held that the North Carolina Board of Examiners for Engineers and Surveyors violated the First Amendment when it ordered Wayne Nutt not to speak about engineering issues.

They demanded he have a state license in order to speak.

According to the Institute for Justice, it sued after the state officials "sent him a series of threatening letters ordering him to stop publicly offering opinions about engineering without a license, on pain of potential criminal punishment."

Nutt, in fact, is a trained engineer, but under the various licensing rules, he was not required to hold his own license as he worked in a corporate environment for his entire career.
