Supreme Court refuses to hear MySpace cases

Two cases, one where both a student's punishment for bullying, and another where a student's right to make arguably bullying comments are left intact as the Supreme Court refuses to hear them.

Both concern whether a school board's authority can reach into students' homes and computer. Apparently the Court is not prepared to rule on the scope of a school's authority outside of school. I wonder what any court would say if the computers used were supplied by the school as they are here in Maine.

The fact that these cases involve MySpace gives us a hint about how long these people have been in court.
