Tigger costs school district $95K

Last year, Redwood Middle School in the Napa Valley, California passed a dress code that required the children to wear only "solid color clothing."

On the first day of school, Toni Kay Scott came to school wearing a pair of socks with a Tigger (from Winnie the Pooh) character on them. The school district jumped to action and disciplined her for a rules violation. She was sent to the principal's office and given an in-school suspension for her infraction.

This week, the school district agreed to pay $95,000 to cover the legal fees of 5 parents who have sued the school district.... and they have to rescind the overly-strict dress code.

I guess this means that the courts are saying "pooh on you" to the Redwood School District?
