  • 2. Basic Information
    Matthew Fraser was giving a speech to nominate a fellow student for elective office.
    School thought that he used a graphic sexual metaphor to promote the candidacy.
    He got suspended for two days.
  • 3. Constitutional Issues
    This case affects the First Amendment by not letting Fraser use free speech
    The school said that Fraser used “x-rated” language during his speech.
  • 4. Court Decision
    There were 7 votes for the school.
    There were 2 votes against the school.
    Court decided that the school did not violate the First Amendment rights by punishing Fraser.
  • 5. Our opinion
    We think that Fraser should not be suspended.
    In High School no one cares what your language is.
    The students would have probably for gotten about it if the school had not thought it was rude.
