Supreme Court Leaves Speech-Protective Appellate Ruling Intact in ‘I [Heart] Boobies’ Case - FIRE
Today, the Supreme Court announced that it would not hear an appeal of Easton Area School District v. B.H., in which the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit ruled that a public Pennsylvania grade school violated the First Amendment by punishing two female students for wearing bracelets that read “I [heart] boobies!” on them. The bracelets are meant to raise awareness of breast cancer, but the school district claimed that they were lewd and inappropriate for the educational environment.
