Politics vs Policy - Schools Sued for Filtering to Heavily?
Looks like the Tennessee School Districts are being threatened with a law suit by the ACLU for filtering to heavily. The sites in question are sites themed around lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender issues that would not be classified as pornographic so blocking them is questionable. In this case the suite seems justified but if this case goes foward and is won it could lead to a nasty pressedent which would require truckloads more paperwork to protect the filterers from legal repricussions if their filters accidently banned something, at least inside the law suit happy US.
