A school district in Georgia was forced to pay $100,000 in legal fees to a group of moms who were barred from conducting out loud readings at school board meetings of the porn-infused books the board approved for school shelves.
A court ordered the Forsyth, Georgia, County School District to pay the legal fees of the group calling themselves the Mama Bears who sued the district when officials barred them from reading from the disgusting books during board meetings.
The moms group claimed that the board violated their First Amendment fights in order to hide the disgusting, inappropriate content of the books from the public.
The women’s group sued the school district in a federal lawsuit and won, according to To Fox News:
CS will pay the Mama Bears nominal damages of $17.91 and their attorneys $107,500.
“Fee shifting is an important feature of our civil rights laws; and successful plaintiffs who are able to show that government officials censored them are entitled to having their attorneys’ fees paid by the wrongdoers, just like for any other form of illegal discrimination. We hope that school-board members and their lawyers take note,” Institute for Free Speech senior attorney Del Kolde told Fox News Digital.
The court also enjoined the district and all affiliated parties from prohibiting the plaintiffs or any “current or future FCS speakers entitled to speak at an FCS school board meeting, from reading or quoting verbatim from the text of any book or written works available in an FCS library or classroom, while addressing the school board during the public-comment period at school board meetings.”
Not only is this a perfect outcome for free speech, it is also a perfect out come to take the fight to these left-wing school boards that insist on exposing little kids to sexually inappropriate and dangerous books.
These kinds of books do not belong in classrooms and highlighting their content can lead to their being removed, as they should be.Commentary
