Sotomayor’s pathetic performance in free speech case

The Cool Justice Report has had excellent continuing coverage of a noxious case in Connecticut where high student student Avery Doninger was disciplined for writing something about a school administrator on her blog while not in school.

They note that Sotomayor was part of a panel of judges who ruled that Doninger’s blog post from a home computer was not protected speech. Why, pray tell, was it not? Are they assuming that high school students do not have the rights that adults have? Because this is a genuinely nasty anti-Free Speech ruling.
