Posted by William Bateman on Apr 18, 2013 0 comments

School officials likely violated the First Amendment free-speech rights of a Florida student when they barred her from engaging in a silent protest against anti-gay bullying, a federal district judge has ruled.

That event, sponsored by the New York City-based Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network, involves students remaining silent at school to draw attention to anti-gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender bullying and harassment.

Hatcher says in her lawsuit that she sought an OK from her principal in advance of last year’s Day of Silence for her and other students to participate by remaining silent except when called on in class, wearing nonvulgar shirts related to the event, and passing out literature.
