What does the Free Speech tag means?

This tag describes a lawsuit where a First Amendment challenge is brought against a statute or other state action. Although many other situations may implicate free speech rights, the Free Speech tag is not appropriate in those instances. If a matter involves a First Amendment challenge brought by a student, then the "Student Speech" tag is appropriate.
