In this case, Augusta State University counseling student Jennifer Keeton expressed desires to refuse treatment of LGBT patients and subject them to conversion therapy, and then refused to go through a remediation course required by the university. Keeton was then dismissed, and the court case ruled that the university she was at did not violate her First Amendment rights (Lambda Legal).
