ACLU sues Minnewaska schools in Facebook incidents


MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The American Civil Liberties Union is claiming Minnewaska Area Schools and the Pope County Sheriff's Office violated a student's rights in two incidents involving Facebook.

In a lawsuit filed Tuesday, the ACLU of Minnesota says a female student was disciplined after posting a comment on Facebook in 2011 about her dislike of a staff member. She was disciplined again when she cursed on Facebook because someone reported her.

In a second incident, she was forced to give administrators her login information and email accounts because she allegedly had online conversations about sex with another student off-campus.

Superintendent Greg Ohl said the district hadn't received the lawsuit and he had no immediate comment. A message left with the county attorney wasn't immediately returned.
