The Somerschool blog discovers that the Volokh Conspiracy doesn't agree with the 9th Circuit court's ruling in Harper v. Poway Unified School District.
The case concerns a high school student named Tyler Chase Harper who wore a provocative, anti-homosexuality t-shirt ("Be Ashamed, Our School Embraced What God Has Condemned") for his school's Day of Silence event.
Given the liberal groupthink that is prevalent among modern government school adminstrators, the clothing was deemed tee-non-grata by the principal. According to Eugene Volokh, "Harper sued, claiming this violated his First Amendment rights. Harper's speech is constitutionally unprotected, the Ninth Circuit just ruled ... "
And the Volokh money quote: "It's a tool for suppression of one side of public debates (about same-sex marriage, about Islam, quite likely about illegal immigration, and more) while the other side remains constitutionally protected and even encouraged by the government."
The Alliance Defense Fund states that its attorneys will appeal the ruling. (Do read the well-worded dissent by the wonderful Judge Alex Kozinski.)
