Saxe v. State College Area School District.

* School security. An appeals court has ruled that a school's harassment prevention policy is overbroad and violates First Amendment rights to free speech. The policy defined harassment as "any verbal or physical conduct based on a person's actual or perceived race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, disability, or other personal characteristics." The lawsuit was filed by a Christian parent whose children were prohibited from speaking out against homosexuality because of the school policy. (Saxe v. State College Area School District, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, No. 99-4081, 2001)
