School can suspend student for MySpace parody
A federal appeals court says students in Pennsylvania can be disciplined for creating MySpace parodies of school leaders- but only if they are likely to disrupt classes. The case involves a teen who wrote a sexually-explicit parody of her principal on her MySpace page that she wrote at home. The three judge panel says the school could expect the posting to be disruptive. Similar free-speech cases have sprung up across the country with mixed rulings.
