Today the American Civil Liberties Union of Florida filed a federal lawsuit against the Alachua County School District.

The lawsuit charges school administrators with unlawfully censoring students’ free speech when students were suspended or threatened with suspension for wearing t-shirts promoting their religious beliefs in school and at school events earlier this year.
