Update on Desoto County Schools Cell Phone Lawsuit
One of the first ACLU vs. Desoto County lawsuits that I started talking about involved a student who was expelled for having gang related pictures on his cell phone that was confiscated by school officials. You can check out a few previous posts here. To update you on this case: the City of Southaven, Southaven police department and Desoto County Schools have been officially served. The reason I mentioned this is because media reports from early September stated that the ACLU would be serving the county at that time; that was not the case. The city plans to seek summary judgment to be removed from this case, and will defend the actions of the school/ officer/ city regardless.
