U.S. Court of Appeals Rule MAGA Hat Is Free Speech

The 9th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals in the case Dodge v. Evergreen School District decided a Washington middle school teacher was exercising his free speech rights while wearing his red MAGA hat at school training sessions.

Middle school teacher Eric Dodge started to wear his MAGA hat to school meetings in 2019 but principal Caroline Garrett threatened disciplinary actions against Dodge if he continued to wear the hat.

Dodge claimed principal Garrett called him a racist and a homophobe for wearing the hat and stated, “you need to have your union rep” if you wear the hat to school anymore.
