Puyallup school paper case now in court
Testimony began this week over a series of stories on oral sex in the Emerald Ridge High School paper, The JagWire, in 2008.
According to an article today in The News Tribune, plaintiffs could seek $16-32 million from the school district.
The district is citing the paper’s public forum status at the time as well as consent to having their names used as defenses. The school has since installed prior review over student media.
