Court ignores First Amendment

From the New Hampshire Union Leader:

A federal judge yesterday rejected Londonderry High School senior Blake Douglass’ request for a preliminary injunction to compel school officials to publish his submitted yearbook photo, which features a broken-open shotgun slung over his shoulder.

Had the court ruled otherwise, the yearbook’s publication could have been delayed until Douglass’ suit against the district is resolved. The suit is still pending.

It's always great when these judges allow some institution to rob someone of one of their rights, so that in the end there's no way to recover it. I hope the School District gets a really hefty judgment against them from the way they're treating this student. That's the only way the message can get through to this and other schools about denying students their right to free speech.
