LaDue teacher Christina Thomas filed a motion today in U. S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri asking for her lawsuit against the LaDue Board of Education and the State Board of Education be dismissed.
The suit apparently became unnecessary after Gov. Jay Nixon signed SB 1, the revision of Sen. Jane Cunningham's SB 54. The revision eliminated the social networking portion of SB 54 and requires every school district in the state to create a policy for student/teacher communications by March 1, 2012.
Ms. Thomas had filed her lawsuit, claiming that SB 54 prevented her from even being able to communicate with her own child via social networking. She was represented by the American Civil Liberties Union.
