INDIANAPOLIS (CN) - A lesbian student has sued Lebanon Community High School for the right to wear a tuxedo to the prom, claiming the school's policy requiring all female students to wear dresses violates the First Amendment.

Kenneth Falk of the ACLU of Indiana is representing her in Federal Court.
