SCOTUS ponders cheerleader’s profanity in free speech case

14-year-old Brandi Levy, after having a bad day in 2017, put up a profanity-laced Snapchat post, which has ended up before the SOCUT in what is being touted as the most significant case on student speech in more than 50 years. At issue is whether public schools can discipline students over something they say off-campus. Levy was suspended from the cheerleading team for a year subsequently.

This is so silly. It's taken four years and it's still not settled. I'll bet the Supreme Court will say it's moot or something because she doesn't attend the school anymore, they've become like the Jedi Council, shut away and hardly offering anything of value.

Do not over look this key fact here: "The case has its roots in the Vietnam-era case of a high school in Des Moines, Iowa, that suspended students who wore armbands to protest the war. In a landmark ruling, the Supreme Court sided with the students, declaring students don't "shed their constitutional rights to freedom of speech or expression at the schoolhouse gate." (Tinker v. Des Moines in 1969.)
