MySpace-Related Expulsion Challenged

CLEVELAND (CN) - In the latest school-related MySpace complaint to land in Federal Court, parents of a 13-year-old student at Hillside Middle School sued the Parma City School District Board of Education for expelling their son because he created a lewd MySpace page using a picture of his principal.
