Two teens in Pennsylvania cannot be disciplined at school for MySpace parodies of their principals created off the campus. A divided U.S. Court of Appeals says the postings are protected under previous Supreme Court case law on student speech. The ACLU sued two different school systems for infringing on student speech when they went beyond school grounds to impose punishment. The judges on the court say the parodies of the principals did not fit exceptions to the law where there was a likelihood the writings would cause significant disruptions at school.
