Loyal readers will doubtless remember last spring’s post When Tigger socks are outlawed, only outlaws will wear cheerful Disney branded cloth on their feet. In it
Toni Kay Scott, a student at Napa Valley’s Redwood Middle School, was sent to an in-school suspension program (with the wonderfully Orwellian-name of Students With Attitude Problems). Her crime? Violating a dress code by wearing socks with Tigger on them, along with a denim skirt and a brown shirt with a pink border.
To no one’s surprise a lawsuit ensued. Said suit has now been settled. The school district has had to cough up$95K in lawyers’ fees and “may no longer require students to wear only solid-color clothing.”
Moral of the story: Don’t mess with The T.
