Student wins free-speech lawsuit against teacher

(Associated Press) A judge says the free speech rights of a Michigan teenager were violated when he expressed an opinion against homosexuality and was removed from class during an anti-bullying day.

Detroit federal Judge Patrick Duggan on Wednesday ruled in favor of Daniel Glowacki and ordered Howell High School teacher Johnson “Jay” McDowell to pay $1.

McDowell admits that he ejected Glowacki from class in 2010 when the student said he doesn’t accept gays because of his religion. McDowell had played a short video about someone who committed suicide after being bullied about his sexual orientation.
