    A federal appeals court ruled against two school principals in Plano, Texas, who prohibited students from handing out candy cane pens and other materials that contained short Christian messages. The 5th Circuit Court of Appeals on Wednesday rejected the school officials' motion to dismiss the case and ruled that they violated the students' constitutional rights.

    "This should send a strong message to school officials all over the country that if you engage in these kinds of violations against children that you're going to be held liable," said Kelly Shackelford, president of Liberty Institute, which represents the families. "Not just the school district will be on the hook."
