Case Overview

Legal Principle at Issue

Does the First Amendment impose any limitations upon the discretion of Petitioners to remove library books from the Island Trees High School and Junior High School? If so, do the affidavits and other evidentiary materials before the District Court, construed most favorably to Respondents, raise a genuine issue of fact whether petitioners might have exceeded those limitations?

Action

Affirmed (includes modified). Petitioning party did not receive a favorable disposition.
