Puyallup case goes to jury


For an update on the Puyallup, Washington, “oral sex coverage,” go to this SPLC Newsflash.

The SPLC reports the judge in the case “issued a confusing ruling in which she determined that The Jagwire was a “limited public forum,” but said that it was nevertheless subject to the U.S. Supreme Court’s 1988 Hazelwood ruling, which allows school officials to censor student speech when they can demonstrate a reasonable educational justification.”

Observers expect a decision by the end of the week.

Reading information available so far should make for interesting class discussion.
