An Oregon high school student who sued his school district after administrators said he couldn’t wear a pro-Trump border wall T-shirt will be given a written apology and $25,000 in a settlement.
Liberty High School senior Addison Barnes, 18, was suspended earlier this year after he refused to cover up his “Donald J. Trump Border Wall Construction Co.” shirt.
The article goes on to state the following:
The shirt — which also features a 2016 Trump quote: “The wall just got 10 feet taller.” — was worn by Barnes in his “People and Politics” class on a day where immigration would be discussed.
Barnes sued his school, the Hillsboro School District and Principal Greg Timmons, claiming his First Amendment rights had been violated.

On Tuesday, Barnes’ lawyers announced they had reached a settlement with the district.
Timmons will write a letter of apology to Barnes, and the district will pay $25,000 to Barnes to cover his legal fees.
Barnes said in a statement that he brought the case “to stand up for myself and other students who might be afraid to express their right-of-center views.”
