On Friday, October 23, the ACLU filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court in Fort Wayne against the Smith-Green School Corporation on behalf of two female high school students.
The students, who are only identified in the lawsuit by their initials, took pictures of themselves at a slumber party in suggestive poses this summer, and then posted them to their MySpace pages. The suit says there was nothing in the pictures identifying the girls as Churubusco High School students.
