A high school student whose commencement speech was cut off when she spoke about her Christian faith will have her case heard in a federal court.

A federal judge in Nevada ruled Monday that a debate over freedom of religious expression in public school commencement ceremonies will go to court.

The charges stem from a June 15 incident at Foothill High School in Henderson, Nevada, when school administrators cut off valedictorian Brittany McComb’s commencement speech after she strayed from a pre-approved script. Earlier, they had removed from her speech references to the Bible and her faith.
