Nursing student's post lead to a lawsuit

>> Monday, February 8, 2010

A nursing student assigned to follow a patient through the birthing process got a little out of hand when she chronicled the experience on her MySpace page, school officials said.

The student’s MySpace posting about the assignment called babies “demons … from hell” and referred to the patient’s newborn as “the new Creep.”

When officials at the University of Louisville’s School of Nursing got wind of the student’s posting, they dismissed her from the nursing program for allegedly violating the school’s honor code and a confidentiality agreement associated with the course.

The student responded with a lawsuit claiming violation of her free speech rights.

And she won. Read full article why she won and dont' miss the readers' reactions.
