Balancing Safety with Free Expression.
Dowling-Sendor, Benjamin
American School Board Journal, v188 n12 p54-56 Dec 2001
James LaVine, a high-school junior, wrote a first-person fantasy about killing 28 people in school and then committing suicide. The district suspended him for 17 days. James and his father filed suit against the school district alleging that the emergency expulsion violated James' First Amendment rights. The District Court ruled for the LaVines without a trial. On appeal, the Ninth Circuit decided the expulsion did not violate James' rights. (MLF)
