Over at The School Law Blog my colleague Mark Walsh has an interesting post about how the U.S. Supreme Court declined this week to consider an appeal concerning whether a high school student’s “immigration” editorial in a school newspaper is protected by free speech rights. A California appellate court decided the editorial was protected speech; a state trial court had ruled otherwise.

Update: Also see the story, “High Court Declines to Hear Student Free-Speech Case,” by Mark Walsh, published today online at Education Week.
