Submission + - Bill & Monica prosecutor now targets free spee

Virchull writes: "The Supreme Court has accepted a free-speech dispute involving a high school student suspended over a "Bong Hits 4 Jesus" banner. The justices accepted an appeal from a school board in Juneau, Alaska, after a federal appeals court allowed a lawsuit by the family of Joseph Frederick to proceed. Frederick was suspended in 2002 after he unfurled the 14-foot-long banner — a reference to marijuana use — just outside school grounds. Attorney Kenneth Starr, the former Whitewater prosecutor who investigated President Clinton's relationship with White House intern Monica Lewinsky, is representing the school board.
