The Very Last to Know

This week, the U.S District Court for the Central District of California announced that it will permit a law suit to continue which alleges that high school officials violated the privacy rights of a local female student, CN, when it disclosed to the CN's mother the reasons why the officials had suspended her from school. School officials had disciplined CN for inappropriate public displays of affection with another female student.

The result is the most puzzling because the District Court allowed the suit to continue notwithstanding the fact that it was well known among students and faculty at Santiago High that CN was a lesbian and she was glad to make the point in full view others during the school day. Yet, in the view of the District Court, CN still had a viable claim for damages when high school officials disclosed these same facts to her mother.

Results like these only give credence to the claim that the ACLU is undertaking a war on parents.
