6:03 am
in a civil suit filed by the parents of audrey pott. two years ago three teens sexually assaulted and took photos of pott while she was unconscious at a party. the high school student later committed suicide. the attackers served their time but the family thinks the punishment was not severe enough, why the pott family is suing two of the three attackers, it settled with the third person earlier this year. today the u.s. supreme court could decide to hear a case surrounding free speech and the american flag. "today in the bay's" kris sanchez live in morgan hill this morning. kris, this is centered around a group of bay area, south bay high school students. >> reporter: right, laura. the students have now become national headlines and it's taking a long time to get here. none of the students are still here at live oak high school here in morgan hill, and even the principal, the assistant principal who was at the helm at the time has moved on as well, but the question remains, where is the balance between students' free speech rights and the rights of administrators to keep
6:04 am
the peace on campus. it stems back to an incident five years ago when the assistant principal at live oak high school in morgan hill banned students from wearing shirts with american flags on cinco de mayo in part because the principal felt the students were motivated not only by american pride but incidents with the mexican flag the year before which sparked several fights. students who did wear the shirts were asked to turn them inside-out. when they refused, they were sent home. as a result, families filed a free speech lawsuit which has been dismissed in lower court. one of the judges who wrote the ninth circuit court majority decision said in part "it was reasonable for school officials to proceed as though the threat of a potentially violent disturbance was real." however, a judge with a different opinion argued that speech cannot be banned only because of how it might be perceived. if the supreme court decides to take up the issue they could make that announcement as early as today. in morgan hill, kris sanchez,
6:05 am
"today in the bay." >> a lot of people watching that one, thank you, kris. the legal dispute dividing the family of the late robin williams will be heard in a san francisco courtroom later today. back in december, williams' wife susan filed papers alleging some of williams' clothes and personal items have been removed from the couple's tiburon home. the actor's three children called her claims despicable and untrue and that she has blocked the trustees from conducting inventory. the public is invited to a celebration this morning to honor the life of a martinez woman killed in a gravel truck accident. dump truck toppled over and crushed lindsay combs' car last month as she was trying to move it. since then, fund-raisers have brought in more than $14,000 to pay for funeral expenses and fly family in from out of state. today's event will be held from

6:34 am
the south bay. 70 degrees expected by noon in the north bay and we'll round out the day above average yet again, temperatures at 74 degrees for the peninsula, 79 in the tri valley. high pressure is going to start to move off to the south and the east as we head throughout the next 24 hours, allowing this area of low pressure to move through. for us, this is going to translate to much cooler temperatures, and maybe even some showers as we meet back here tomorrow morning. the bulk of the moisture comes through between about 3:00 a.m. and k a.m., not expecting anything heavy. we have a better chance, though, getting into your easter weekend. it looks like we are going to kick off a rainy pattern, i'll describe that to you in my next report. first getting out the front door here's mike inouye on a monday morning. >> good morning, folks. we'll take two live cameras first and show you the rest of the bay. i want to take the oakland camera, southbound 880 around 66th the overcrossing you see above our kicker at the bottom, reports of a crash there, i scanned the area and still don't see any issues or interruptions

to the traffic flow so i wanted to confirm that first. the second incident tracking right in front of our camera on the peninsula, palo alto, 101 at university, the on-ramp above where it says nbc and the other side you see a big rig on the frontage road by the stores, not a problem for the off-ramp there on the northbound side. so again, check the incident report, but i you don't see any slowing there. let's start with the peninsula, bottom of your screen the barricade reports the incident university off-ramp. slowing for 92 at the top of your screen coming across the san mateo bridge, typical there. same thing for the south bay, north 87 and 101 slowing through the crash at tully is causing it. lighter overall volume kicking in for the south bay. we'll love your map farther over toward the tri valley, earlier problems at the dublin interchange, the crash cleared but flowing after livermore. the tri valley commute there, same thing for hayward toward

6:52 am
morgan hill, and now we know that the supreme court is not going to look back at that case, again, either. this harkens back to an incident five years ago the assistant principal banned students from wearing shirts with the american flag on cinco de mayo because the principal felt like the students were motivated not only by their american pride but also by an incident the year before with the mexican flag which sparked several fights. students who did wear the shirts were asked to turn them inside out, they refused and were sent home, and as a result, the families filed this free speech lawsuit which has been dismissed by lower courts, one judge at the ninth circuit court of appeals saying that it was reasonable for school officials to proceed as though the threat of a potentially violent disturbance was real, and now, we can assume that the united states supreme court, the highest court, the last word on the matter, might agree with that. they have decided not to take up the issue that really did take a

stand between where the rights of the students' free speech ends and where the rights of the administrators' rights to keep the peace began. so again, the united states supreme court not taking up the issue of the american flag bearing t-shirts here at live oak high school in morgan hill. in morgan hill, kris sanchez, "today in the bay." >> thank you, kris. more breaking news to share with you, we're hearing reports of a possible shooting at ft. meade in maryland. we've got a live look at the scene from ft. meade, maryland, this morning. we don't know how yet these cars are involved. you see an accident of some sort there in the center of your screen but officials say two people arrived at its gate injured this morning but it's unclear how they were hurt or just how badly they were hurt. initial reports indicate the incident happened outside of the entrance itself but it's not clear yet if anyone from the military base was involved. we'll continue to follow this breaking news story this
