Description

A man gets angry with his neighbors and creates a Halloween display using tombstones with their names and poems of how they meet their untimely demises! A fist fight ensues! The police arrive and tell the man he can take down the display or face disorderly conduct charges. The man sues the police department saying they violated his right to free speech. Will he win?

Extend that to a fraternity facing sanctions for their offensive costumes? Does free speech also apply here?

Halloween is on a school day this year! But that shouldn't strike fear into your heart! Let us help you with the fun, rigorous, and engaging Halloween Lesson.
