SALINE, Mich. – Four Saline High School students suspended for using racist emojis and derogatory terms on Snapchat are suing the school district, alleging their free speech rights were violated. 

The federal lawsuit alleges because the messages in question happened off school property, outside of school hours or events and on personal devices, the actions taken against the students violate their rights to free speech protection and violated school policies and procedures. 

“This case boils down to a simple question: When a child misbehaves at home, who disciplines — the local public school or the parent? If a child gets stopped for drunk driving on a Saturday night, does the school have the right to expel that student? The answer is obvious. No,”  said attorney David Kallman in a news release. “The conversation of these children had nothing to do with the school. It has no authority to discipline students for out of school misbehavior.”
