They’ll keep suing, and they’ll just keep losing. Do you all remember the student who was mad because he made a speech opposing marriage equality, and his teacher allegedly called him an idiot, or something else equally rude but otherwise protected under the First Amendment? The student, or his Religious Right handlers, obviously doesn’t understand when you actually have grounds to sue, or what the judicial system is actually for:
The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday unanimously overturned a lower court decision allowing Los Angeles City College student Jonathan Lopez’ case to go forward.
A three-judge panel says Lopez failed to show he was harmed by the incident days after California voters in November 2008 enacted Proposition 8 a ban on gay marriages.
Lopez alleged that speech instructor John Matteson cut him off midway through his oration when he quoted a dictionary definition of marriage and recited a pair of Bible verses. He said Matteson also called him a “fascist bastard.”
Welcome to college, Jonathan. They challenge your beliefs, and sometimes they don’t hold your widdle hands while they’re doing it.
