NY High Court: Local Cyberbullying Law Invalid

ALBANY -

The state’s highest court ruled Tuesday that a local cyberbullying law is too broad, noting that “the First Amendment protects annoying and embarrassing speech,” the Associated Press reported. The Court of Appeals ruling concerned a high school student who anonymously posted embarrassing photographs of fellow students. He was charged with violating a 2010 Albany County law, which was now struck down.
