Fourth Circuit rejects claim to school district's information distribution system for issue advocacy

In Page v. Lexington County School District, the Fourth Circuit in an opinion by Judge Niemeyer, joined by Chief Judge Williams and Judge Duncan, affirmed the entry of summary judgment on the section 1983 claims of a citizen who sued for equal access to the school district's "information distribution system" that the district had used to oppose legislation the plaintiff favored.

The amici supporting the appellee include the Virginia School Boards Association.
