Research your assigned court case dealing with student publications. You will create a TikTok style video  for your assigned court case. Here are the questions you need to be sure to answer in your presentation: 

•What was the primary issue? (aka What is the court case about?)

•Who was involved? (names, roles, etc.)

•When did it happen?

•Who won? (make sure to only focus on FINAL decision)

•How does this affect what WE (in high school journalism) do?
