California District Judge Dismisses Lawsuit Against School Which Forbade American-Themed T-Shirts on Cinco de Mayo
Noticeably truant at these proceedings would be the ACLU.
Why aren’t they (the ACLU) leading the charge alongside the parents as they battle against a school which is flagrantly suppressing the Constitutionally guaranteed Rights of students?
After all, in a similar 2003 case, when a child showed up at a Michigan school wearing a t-shirt that said Bush was an international terrorist, the ACLU immediately jumped all over that one, saying: “…[S]tudents don’t give up their right to express opinions on matters of public importance once they enter school … Schools are not speech-free zones.”
What are they, hypocrites or something?

MHUSD wins lawsuit over Cinco de Mayo T-shirt incident
By Angela Ruggiero – Morgan Hill Times
A decision was reached in favor of the Morgan Hill Unified School District and administrators in the civil rights lawsuit against the district and two former Live Oak High School administrators over the American T-shirt controversy from Cinco de Mayo 2010, said Alyson Cabrera, the lawyer representing MHUSD and former Principal Nick Boden and former Assistant Principal Miguel Rodriguez. The decision was reached Tuesday afternoon.
Plaintiffs Dianna and John Dariano, parents of Matt Dariano; Kurt and Julie Ann Fagerstrom, parents of Dominic Maciel; and Kendall and Joy Jones on behalf of Daniel Galli filed the lawsuit against the school district alleging violations against their First and Fourteenth Amendment rights after their children wore American-themed T-shirts to Live Oak and were sent home after refusing to remove the shirts and apparel after Boden and Rodriguez were concerned about the potential for violence on campus. The fourth student, Austin Carvalho or his parents, did not file a lawsuit.
The lawsuit sought nominal damages including changing school policies to clearly state students’ rights and protections under the Bill of Rights and reimbursing lawyer fees and expenses for the cost of litigation.
The United States District court dismissed all claims against MHUSD. The case against Rodriguez was also dismissed. This ends litigation before the district court, although the plaintiffs do have the right to appeal through the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. Because Boden filed for bankruptcy, all proceedings against Boden are stayed as a matter of law, meaning an order could not be entered. His case now under the jurisdiction of the federal court.
How many want to wager that—unless the ACLU gets involved—the Lefturd majority sitting on the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals bench will side with an obviously Libtarded district judge on this one?
After that, it’s off to the U.S. Supreme Court.Explore posts in the same categories: Abuse of Power, Education, Family, immigration, Indoctrination, Insanity, Justice System, Leftists, Liberals, Multiculturalism, Parenting, patriotism
