ABSTRACT
This article discusses some measures to stop cyber-bullying without violating free speech rights of students in the U.S. It reflects on the decision of the Supreme Court in the free speech case Tinker v. Des Moines Independent Community School District. It also explores the interpretations of the Tinker standard of a substantial disruption by several Federal Circuit Courts of Appeals which suggest that it could also be applied to cyber-bullying. In addition, the article notes the vulnerability of schools to students' First Amendment claims if they attempt to discipline against cyber-bullying.
