NY high court: Local cyberbullying law invalid

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) -- New York's highest court has ruled that a local cyberbullying law in Albany County violates Constitutional free speech protections.

The Court of Appeals ruling Tuesday involves the case of a high school student who anonymously posted photographs of fellow students on Facebook along with personal details and offensive descriptions of their supposed sexual behavior.

The teen was charged with violating a 2010 county law prohibiting cyberbullying.

The court ruled that while the teen's actions were "repulsive," the county law is overly broad since the First Amendment protects even "embarrassing" or "annoying" speech.

The court declined a request from the county's attorney to strike parts of the law that were deemed overly broad.

A state law prohibiting cyberbullying was passed in 2012.
