Currently, I've only seen what is in that article. I haven't had time to dig deeper. I'll let you know if I learn more (though with the government not commenting and the school under a gag order, I doubt there's much more info available).

Yeah, I had seen this all ready. How this plays out will be very, very key to how far the government is allowed to go with this kind of behavior. They are testing that waters. I am glad the group has every intention of fighting it.
