    -Dean's article was about a lawsuit pending against her school by Joanne and Rey Frances

    - Rey Frances died on July 7th from lung cancer

    - The Frances' lived next door to the bus garage

    - The garage fumes were hazardous to heath... said Joanne Frances

    - Principal was concerned about the article's use of unreasonable sources and sent the article to the superintendent who agreed.

     

    The court's decision

    - schools censorship = indefensible

     

    Rationale:

    - newpaper limited public forum

    -school officials had never intervened in past 25 years

    - article was as good as professional paper

     

    Impact:

    -Helped student run newspapers and magazines

    - School officials can't regulate all articles just because they don't like, or agree with
