School administrators, parents and students have been left with few guidelines in the wake of a decision last week by the U.S. Supreme Court, which declined to review appeals over school discipline of students' online speech. Although a lawyer for the American Civil Liberties Union suggested that the cases, which dealt with cyberbullying and other off-campus Internet speech, may not have been the best cases for the court to use to establish precedents, others say schools need the high court's guidance. "These issues are not going to go away," said Stephen Wermiel, a law and government fellow at American University.
