Attorneys for 9-year old Jason Gardner say the school has violated Jason's civil rights by preventing him from reading Rush Limbaugh in class.

Two other teachers have since banned any reading material not found in the school library.
Attorneys for the Rutherford Institute gave the school one week to revoke that policy or face a lawsuit.
That deadline came and went yesterday, with no response from the school.
The attorney for the school could not be reached for comment.

Researchers say women who have a flawed BRCA-ONE gene seem to have a greater survival rate-- than other women with the disease-- meaning the cancer is less aggressive.
