SCOTUS decides in favor of teen girl in the largest free speech case in decades

The US Supreme Court has found that a Pennsylvania school violated a student cheerleader’s right to free speech when it punished her for a profanity-filled Snapchat post she made off campus. Brandi Levy — then a 14-year-old freshman cheerleader — was suspended in 2017 from cheerleading at Mahoney Area High School for a year after an expletive laced video was posted online. This was an 8-1 decision

Good. A school shouldn't have control over what a student is saying or doing off of school grounds.

The easiest crimes to get convictions are online hate but there are literally no victims. Even if your being harrassed every phone can block callers.

I bet the comments here from right wingers would be the complete opposite if she'd said "one nation, under Allah." 🙄

Well, it’s not very “lady-like,” but she has a right to drop f-bombs if she likes and should not be penalized by the school for her non-school activities. Good job, Supreme Court!

Off of school grounds/site/Facebook group etc, the school has no right of authority in these cases. Time and place is a generally good thing to bear in mind when evaluating someone else's behaviour. Not just your own.

Why would a school have any authority over students when they’re outside of school?

Good for her. To many panzies out there who cant take the simplest of insults. Tell someone to shut up and omg your school might suspend you for using volgue language.

I'm very surprised that Justice Thomas was the sole dissenting voice as he's usually spot on in Constitutional matters.
