Student retains parking privileges after suing school over pro-Trump truck

Speaking About News

A Florida high school student who sued his school last month after they revoked his parking privileges when he showed up with a pro-Trump display, held on to his parking spot after a federal judge issued a restraining order against the school.

Tyler Maxwell, 18, said he had been so excited to vote for president for the first time, he placed a massive elephant figurine in the flat bed of his truck decorated with pro-Trump signs and drove it to his school in New Smyrna Beach, Fla, according to a report by Fox News affiliate Fox 35.

But a few minutes into one of his classes on Sept. 14, Maxwell said he was hauled aside by the principal and told to remove his truck from the parking lot. When he returned the next day with the decorated elephant — a family heirloom of sorts that his grandfather had bought at a car dealership and passed on to Maxwell — the school revoked his parking privileges.

“It’s a freedom of speech case,” said Maxwell’s lawyer Jacob Heubert. “The question is, ‘Should a student have to give up his free speech right when he drives onto school property?’  The answer to that is no and the school just needs to realize that.”

Last week, a federal judge granted a temporary restraining order allowing Maxwell to retain his parking privileges.
