Supreme Court Rules for
Cheerleader Punished for
Vulgar Snapchat Message
A Pennsylvania school district violated the First Amendment by disciplining a
student for off-campus speech, the court ruled.
In dissent, Justice Thomas wrote that
"the majority fails to consider whether schools often will have more authority, not less, to discipline students who transmit speech through social media."
"Because off-campus speech made through social media can be received on campus (and can spread rapidly to countless people)," Justice Thomas wrote, "it often will have a greater proximate tendency to harm the school environment than will an off-campus in- person conversation."
