"Immigration" Essay Appeal Won't Be Heard by U.S. Supreme Court

Over at The School Law Blog my colleague Mark Walsh has an interesting post about how the U.S. Supreme Court declined this week to consider an appeal concerning whether a high school student's "immigration" editorial in a school newspaper is protected by free speech rights. A California appellate court decided the editorial was protected speech; a state trial court had ruled otherwise.

Update: Also see the story, "High Court Declines to Hear Student Free-Speech Case," by Mark Walsh, published today online at Education Week.
