      Former student appeals ruling on confederate clothing in school

      A federal appeals court is hearing a review on a fight over confederate clothing in the Latta School District.

      In 2006, Candice Hardwick, then 15-years-old, sued the school district saying it was her constitutional right to wear clothing with the confederate flag on it after being suspended twice for doing so.

      A judge has ruled in favor of the school district, saying administrators are entitled to a certain degree of flexibility in enforcing policies.

      The appeals court heard arguments Wednesday.

      Hardwick wants the court to reinstate the lawsuit.
