We have freedom of press! We should sue our principal.
One day, some bright students decided to make a school news paper.
I declared the law unconstitutional. He has the right to edit the paper!
The principal did not like some of the topics mentioned because he felt that they might appear too sensitive to some students, so he decided to do some editing.
Freedom of the Press
The next day, the kids realized they had been scammed! They decided to sue the principal for violating there first amendment rights.
Now I have a safe school newspaper!
This was a civil case of course, and was brought to the Supreme Court. They chose the verdict, and decided the principal was not guilty, also they used their power called judicial review and decided that the law was unconstitutional.
The Supreme Court used the First Amendment in this ruling, because the controversy in this case was over freedom of press, which is one of the rights granted to us by the First Amendment.
Now principals all across America can edit students papers if they feel that it isn't appropriate.
