    Principal Withholds Diplomas from Graduates After Silent Protest - LAist

    Apart from being rather unjust, I suspect that constituted a fairly straightforward First Amendment violation. Now, silent protests aren't typically considered sufficiently disruptive to warrant ejection or later punishment in ordinary public gatherings, but there's of course a lesser standard of protection offered to public school students. Their capacities for any legal action they might consider taking are also limited by the fact that they're no longer students at Liechty.

    I support the students 100%, there is no valid reason for the principal to have held their diplomas.
