It looks like it might finally be over.
A federal judge has ordered the Itawamba County School District in Mississippi to pay $81,000 in legal fees and expenses in a lawsuit filed by Contsance McMillen, whose prom was cancelled, reinstated, then faked, all because she wanted to bring her girlfriend.
US District Judge Glen Davidson, who ruled in March that McMillen’s rights were violated, signed the order on Monday.
Constance McMillen and the ACLU sued Itawamba County School District to challenge the district’s “ban” on same-sex prom dates. Once the suit was filed, the school canceled prom. Angry parents sponsored another dance, but tricked McMillen into going to a “sham prom” while other students partied elsewhere.
All of this because a girl wanted to bring her girlfriend to a dance.
Sidenote: the headline of the New York Times article was entitled “Judge Awards Legal Fees in Miss. Lesbian Prom Case”.
I thought, There’s a Miss Lesbian Prom somewhere?
Then I saw the period.
