The Impact of Fuzzy Logic on Student Press Law.
McCool, Lauralee; Plopper, Bruce L.
Journalism and Mass Communication Educator, v55 n4 p4-17 Win 2001
Uses the relatively new science of fuzzy logic to review lower court and appellate court decisions from the last four decades regarding free expression in student publications. Finds pronounced effects, showing that fuzzy sets inherently favor administrators, while students show a strikingly high win/loss ratio when courts avoid fuzzy logic. (SR)
