MADISON, Wis. (AP) – A Wisconsin student has filed a federal lawsuit challenging her school’s ban on breast cancer awareness bracelets.

The Wisconsin State Journal reports in Friday’s editions that Sauk Prairie Middle School eighth-grader Kaisey Jenkins and her mother, Caran Braun, believe Principal Ted Harter’s ban on “I (heart) Boobies! (Keep a Breast)” bracelets Principal Ted Harter imposed violates Jenkins’ free speech rights.

According to the lawsuit, Harter imposed the ban at the beginning of the second semester last school year. Students who wore the bracelets risked detention, suspension or other penalties.

Sauk Prairie School District Superintendent Craig Bender didn’t immediately return a message The Associated Press left at his office Friday morning.
