Judge Mary McLaughlin sided with students in a free speech test case filed by the ACLU. She issued a temporary restraining injunction that bars Easton Area Schools from enforcing a ban on the bracelets. The judge says the bracelets are being worn to promote breast cancer awareness. School district leaders argued the slogan has a double meaning and leads to distractions.
