First Amendment Lawsuit: Student Expelled By Anti-Defamation League Over Jewish Joke Fights for His Free Speech

A former Colorado high school student is waging an ongoing battle with the US government and organized Jewry in court.

In what is the first real test of the Supreme Court’s spring ruling in B.L. v. Mahanoy, which declared that public school students have First Amendment rights when they are off campus, an individual identified as C.G. is appealing the dismissal of his lawsuit challenging his expulsion from Cherry Creek High School over a joke he made about Jewish people.

According to the facts in the case, C.G. went to a thrift store on an evening in 2019. While trying on WWII military caps, he wrote to Snapchat “Me and the boys bout to exterminate the Jews.” The post was made off school property.

A Jewish student saw the post and had their parents report it to the police, the Israeli lobbyists at the Anti-Defamation League, Rabbi Richard Rheins, and school district officials. The post, even after being deleted, was circulated widely throughout the Jewish community, which whipped them up into a hysteria and prompted a witch hunt.
