Judge Rules Against Lesbian Teen in Prom Flap

Tuesday, 23 March 2010 07:14 PM

A federal judge says he won't force a Mississippi school district to hold a prom canceled after a lesbian student asked to bring her girlfriend.

The American Civil Liberties Union sued in U.S. District Court to force the Itawamba County school district to sponsor the prom and allow Constance McMillen to escort her girlfriend and wear a tuxedo.

U.S. District Judge Glen H. Davidson denied a motion for a preliminary injunction, but said he'll still hold a trial. But he didn't set a date, and it could be too late to hold the April 2 prom at Itawamba Agricultural High School. Officials said in court they canceled it because McMillen's challenge to the rules had caused disruptions.

McMillen first approached school officials about bringing her girlfriend in December, and again in February. They said no.
