As discussed in my February 18, 2010 and April 12, 2010 blog entries on free speech, the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit reached conflicting results in two student free speech cases: Layshock v. Hermitage School District and J.S. v. Blue Mountain School District. The Third Circuit has granted the request for rehearings before a full panel of the Court for each case, which will occur on June 3, 2010. It is unclear if the cases will be consolidated.
