Is Itawamba County Liable For Students Going to the ‘Other’ Prom?

Constance McMillen’s lawsuit against the Itawamba County School District was updated this week to include charges that the school’s “fake” prom was intentionally set up by school officials in their continuing exercise in infringing on Constance’s First Amendment rights. The federal lawsuit is looking for compensatory damages for Constance’s “public humiliation and disparagement.” The evidence? This bullshit.

And while it may be hard to argue that the disgusting behavior of students on Facebook is the responsibility of school administrators, we’re certainly interested to see if this lawsuit can actually pin on Itawamba any legal responsibility for hosting a prom they knew wouldn’t be attended, because they helped set up the second prom Constance wasn’t invited to.
