A federal appeals court is considering an eastern Pennsylvania school district's efforts to ban breast cancer fundraising bracelets that say "I (heart) boobies!"
Easton's The Express-Times newspaper (http://bit.ly/IpfHIV) says the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals panel in Philadelphia heard opening statements in the case Tuesday.
Two Easton Area Middle School students say their freedom of speech rights were violated when they were suspended for wearing the bracelets in October 2010.
The district is appealing a federal judge's ruling that the district cannot ban the rubber jewelry because it is not lewd, vulgar or distracting to the school day.
Attorneys for the district and the American Civil Liberties Union sparred Tuesday over whether the phrase has a sexual connotation.
