Excerpt from the legal challenge:
The District’s refusal to allow Larissa to wear her Native
American religious regalia at the graduation, while permitting other
students to wear comparable expressive secular messages, was a
violation of Larissa’s rights to free exercise of religion and free speech
under the U.S. Constitution and under Arizona law.
First word that comes to mind: shameful. They deny this young student the right to wear her religious regalia while allowing other students to wear their “expressive secular messages”?
