Supreme Court Rules In Favor Of Cheerleader's Comments Criticizing School

The Supreme Court ruled Wednesday in favor of a cheerleader instead of her Pennsylvania school.

The cheerleader was suspended from her team for using F-bombs in online comments about her school. The court argued her comments were protected speech under the First Amendment.

Here & Now‘s Peter O’Dowd talks with NPR’s justice correspondent Carrie Johnson about the ruling.
