Supreme Court Sidesteps Conn. Student-Speech Case
The U.S. Supreme Court has declined to disturb a ruling that Connecticut school officials acted reasonably in disciplining a student for an Internet posting she wrote outside of school. The justices last week turned down an appeal from Avery Doninger, who was a high school junior in Burlington, Conn., when she took to the Internet to criticize administrators for canceling a popular school activity. Ms. Doninger sued school officials after they punished her by preventing her from serving as class secretary as a senior. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit, in New York City, sided with the school officials.
