Mo. teens sue after being disciplined over cyberbullying allegations

Two Missouri teens are suing their school district after they were removed over allegations of cyberbullying, the Joplin Globe reports. The Newton County Sheriff's Department investigated, but that didn't lead to criminal charges. (I can't get to the federal lawsuit itself just yet -- PACER was down when I checked earlier. I'll try to get a copy of the suit later, though.)

I'm curious whether this alleged cyberbullying happened at school or at home. There have been a couple of cases where schools have disciplined students for online content that wasn't created on school grounds or with school equipment.

Hat Tip: Many thanks, JUNGLE JIM!
