On the Defense

A football player at a New Jersey Catholic high school was expelled last October for blogging about his coach. Now he’s considering suing the school. “It’s outrageous that a private institution can wave their proverbial hand into students’ homes where they are being monitored by their parents,” the student’s lawyer told MTV News, the Media Center Blog reports. The school says it prohibits students from blogging on sites like MySpace and Xanga to protect not the school, but students from Internet predators.
