The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has filed a lawsuit against the San Diego Unified School District (SDUSD) stemming from a Feb. 15 incident in which La Jolla High School allegedly illegally painted out political messages created by Iranian-American students on campus senior benches supporting freedom for Iran.

Political messages painted by students on senior benches at La Jolla High back in February has led to an ACLU lawsuit being filed.

The messages, painted by members of the school’s Persian Club, were promptly painted over by school administrators who deemed them to be inappropriate in an unapproved location.

A couple of days later La Jolla High students painted a similar but slightly different message on the benches: “Freedom for Iran and LJHS,” which, too, was whited-out.
