Stephen Butler, a student at Rio Rancho Public Schools (N.M.), was suspended after school officials discovered weapons and drug paraphernalia in his brother’s car, which he had driven to school that day. Stephen claimed not to have known of his brother’s contraband and challenged his suspension in court.
