In 2000, in the
AlBaho Case, a French criminal court found three senior academics at the " École Supérieure de Physique et de Chimie Industrielles de la Ville de Paris" (ESPCI), guilty of email espionage on a graduate (doctoral) student. The ruling set an important precedent in e-mail privacybut it was also a landmark ruling in student rights since this was the only known incident where academic staff where found guilty of a criminal act as a result of a complaint made by a student - and where those staff members had the full support of their institution.
1969, the United Statesfederal courts, in " Tinker v. Des Moines Independent Community School District", ruled that, "Students do not shed their constitutional rights... at the schoolhouse gate." The " Morse v. Frederick" trial was a First Amendment student free speech case argued before the Supreme Court of the United Stateson March 19, 2007. The case involves Joseph Frederick, a then 18-year-old high school senior in Juneau, Alaska, now 24, who was suspended for 10 days after displaying a "Bong Hits 4 Jesus" banner across the street from his high school during the Winter Olympics Torch Relay in 2002.
