First Wins at 7th Circuit

June 15, 2022 -- Today, the United States Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit reversed an order dismissing a case brought by firm clients. The clients, public school students in Wisconsin, had worn clothing to school that included images of firearms. After school officials told the students they could not wear such clothing, John Monroe Law, P.C. sued the school officials. The federal district court dismissed the cases, ruling that although the clothing was protected by the First Amendment, the schools could regulate the speech out of "legitimate pedagogical concerns." The 7th Circuit reversed, ruling that the district court applied the wrong test and should instead determine if the officials could "reasonably forecast a substantial disruption" in the school on account of the clothing.
