Clue-free rules

If you think your rules for hyphens require you to create compounds where compounds fear to tread, please think again. This case is not about flag-free speech at schools. It's a free-speech case* about wearing the American flag as clothing at school. Even if you shrink at saying "top court" or "high court" for the Supreme Court, surely you'd make an exception here, just to unstack "school flag free speech case."

* I can't find the story on the Eagle site; this appears to be the hometown version of the original. The court has declined to grant certiorari. I think it's kind of cool that an amicus brief was filed on behalf of the Tinker plaintiffs.

Well, I think students should be allowed to express themselves in school without being forced to use semaphore. So I support their right to flag-free speech.

Maybe it's a hybrid noun pile, with a verb. The court may watch the school flag some free speech.
