T-Shirt Lawsuit Ends

The Fourth Circuit Court has refused to hear an appeal from the Albemarle County Schools Board in the suit brought against them in late 2002 by the family of a Jack Jouett student, WINA reports. Twelve-year-old Alan Newsome was not permitted to wear his NRA t-shirt to school, despite there being no rule to the contrary. (Notably, the logo of Albemarle High School is a man carrying a gun, and the logo of UVa is two crossed swords.) With the support of the NRA, Newsome sued for the right to wear the shirt, and won last month. With the denial of the school board’s appeal, that ends the case in Newsome’s favor.
