A federal judge in Panama City has dismissed the principal of a Northwest Florida school from a lawsuit.
The judge approved a motion dismissing Ponce de Leon High School Principal David Davis from the suit filed by a student.
The student claims Davis violated her right to free speech by banning her from wearing clothing or stickers containing slogans supporting homosexuals.
The suit was filed by the American Civil Liberties Union on behalf of the student and her cousin.
The judge did allow the student to amend her complaint to sue Davis personally.
Previously, Holmes County School officials stated that the student's rights were not violated.
