Cheerleader Who Wouldn't Cheer Rapist Loses Supreme Court Bid


The Texas cheerleader who was kicked off her squad after refusing to cheer for her own rapist has lost her Supreme Court appeal. According to the SF Chronicle, a lower court had ruled “that the cheerleader was speaking for the school, not herself, and had no right to remain silent when called on to cheer the athlete by name.” The Supreme Court declined to hear her case, and did not explain why.
