Voices United, a student club at Carmel High School, wanted to hang a pro-choice banner in the school cafeteria in 2014. However, the School’s regulations prohibit clubs from posting advocacy messages in the cafeteria. The School granted an exception to a pro-life group after the group threatened a lawsuit. The School’s refusal to grant a similar exception to Voices United constitutes viewpoint discrimination and is presumptively unconstitutional. The ACLU has requested a preliminary injunction and a preliminary injunction hearing was held and the matter is pending.
