U. S District Judge Richard W. Story was sympathetic that Atlanta high school student Reuben Lack was removed from his position as student council president for trying to implement a prom court inclusive of same-sex couples, but he refused to reinstate Lack to his leadership role. Lawyers for the school argued that Lack was removed not for pressing the prom issue, but for “things he did not do or that were disrespectful to his fellow students and advisers.” Lack had sued, arguing that his First Amendment rights were violated.
