FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - A Kentucky student won't be allowed to proceed with a lawsuit seeking $1 from his school district for instituting a policy that barred him from expressing his opposition to homosexuality.
The U.S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals says Boyd County High School student Timothy Morrison failed to show that he was harmed by the policy that was later changed.
Judges Karen Nelson Moore and Deborah L. Cook said the lawsuit shouldn't be allowed to continue. Judge John R. Adams dissented.
Morrison claimed in his lawsuit the policy threatened him with punishment for expressing religious beliefs in opposition to homosexuality. Morrison was never punished under the policy, which was later changed to exempt speech that would normally be protected
