Morse v. Frederick

From dKosopedia

Morse v. Frederick is a First Amendment student free speech case before the U.S. Supreme Court.

With a little help from his friends, 18 year old Juneau, Alaska high school student Joseph Frederick unfurls Bong Hits 4 Jesus banner across the street from his school during the January 2002 Winter Olympics Torch Relay.

School Principal Deborah Morse raced across the street and off school property to seize the expression of First Amendment Freedom. She later punishes him with a 10 day suspension when he refuses to reveal the names of his friends. Her absurd overreaction results in what eventually becomes the U.S. Supreme Court case.
