judge sets trial date
Judge sets trial date in anarchy club case
December06, 2001 7:12 AM
Kanawha Circuit Judge James Stucky yesterday scheduled a jury trial for June 24th for Katie Sierra, the Sissonville High School student blocked from starting an anarchy club.
Last month, Sierra sued the Kanawha County board of education after administrators suspended her for starting the anarchy club and wearing T-shirts with messages opposing US military action in Afghanistan.
Sierra wants to start the club, wear the clothing and have the suspension removed from her student record.
The judge told Sierra yesterday he could not guarantee her safety at the school. He offered to help transfer her to another county high school that would be more diverse.
Right now, Sierra is taking classes at home
