The U.S. Supreme Court declined Monday to take up a legal dispute over whether school districts can ban bracelets worn by students bearing the slogan "I ♥ boobies! (KEEP A BREAST)" to promote breast cancer awareness.
School officials in some districts say the bracelets are disruptive and have caused disciplinary problems.
The Easton Area School District in Pennsylvania, on the New Jersey border, banned them as lewd — and two students and the American Civil Liberties Union sued. They prevailed in a federal appeals court, which struck down the ban, and the Supreme Court let that ruling stand.
The bracelets are distributed by a nonprofit group, the Keep A Breast Foundation of Carlsbad, Calif.
