School banned T-shirt, now must pay kid $25,000

Now the Oregonian has reported that the school district agreed to pay Barnes $25,000, which will cover his legal fees.The school by the way is Liberty High School.
Don Surber  "I don't know how much Addison Barnes paid for his "Donald J. Trump Border Wall Construction Co.'' T-shirt but it is the best investment in his young life.

"The 18-year-old wore it to school in Hillsboro, Oregon, on January 19." . . .

"Vice Principal Amanda Ryan-Fear freaked out and ordered him to cover the shirt. He did, but he later changed his mind. She suspended Barnes for 10 days for defiance.

"In May, he sued. U.S. District Judge Michael W. Mosman found the school district couldn't justify its censorship.

"In court, attorney Peter Mersereau argued for the Hillsboro School District.

" 'This particular school district has a population that is one-third Hispanic. This is not Lake Oswego. This is not West Linn,'' Mersereau said.

"To which the judge said, "So First Amendment protections vary from high school to high school?'"

"The student's lawyers argued that the district allowed one of his teachers to display a sign in front of a classroom that reads, "Sanctuary City, Welcome Home.' " . . .
