ITTAWAMBA COUNTY, MS (WLBT) - The American Civil Liberties Union has filed a lawsuit against Ittawamba County Agricultural High School after a prom controversy.
The A.C.L.U. said Thursday the school canceled prom rather than let a lesbian high school senior attend the event with her girlfriend and wear a tux.
They want the court to reinstate the prom for all students.
The group also charged the school district with violating Constance McMillen's first amendment rights.
