Last week the U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear the case, which means the federal appeals decision that upheld a lower court's ruling that she must pay the money will stand.
According to a report in Business Insider, the girl accused a fellow student of raping her at a party. He pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge to avoid jail time and was allowed to return to school and the basketball team.
She continued to cheer for the team, but she refused to cheer whenever her attacker did anything. The schools superintendent kicked her off the team when he learned what she was (and wasn't) doing.
The girl sued the school claiming her free speech rights had been violated. However, two courts ruled that as a cheerleader she speaks for the school, not herself, and that she did not have the right to refuse to cheer for anyone.
