Galveston Independent School Dist. v. Tetley (threatened lawsuit)
Status: Threated suit; Not filed

In late October 2007, the Galveston Independent School District had its attorney send a letter to the operator of the Galveston Alliance for Neighborhood Schools blog site (, threatening to sue over comments accusing school board members of various improprieties. The threat gained national attention after the Drudge Report website linked to articles about the dispute. The following week, the school board announced that it would not sue, saying that the threat had shifted the district’s focus away from its educational mission.
