T.V. v. Smith-Green Community School Corp., No. 09-CV-00290, 2011 BL 206733 (N.D. Ind. Aug. 10, 2011) While admonishing that "[n]ot much good takes place at slumber parties for high school kids, and this case proves that point," the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Indiana nonetheless found that photos taken by a group of high school students at summer slumber parties, as well as the act of posting those photos on the Internet, were protected free speech. T.V. at 1. The court observed that although the pictures featured teenage girls in sexually suggestive poses, none of the pictures could be considered obscene under Indiana law, and therefore, that the defendant school district improperly punished the students.
