What Happens When 2 Cheerleaders Fight Over A BOY? HM! Reminds Me..

What Happens When 2 Cheerleaders Fight Over A BOY? HM! Reminds Me.. 
This from my own words in the big bold. 
Like everyday you will find that there's always 1 bad apple out of the bunch. I have found that no matter the setting that your in rather it be at school, a group, club, and/or church. There's someone that is mostly young in age that is being taken advantage of simply because your younger then them and possibly calling themselves your friend. That will turn against you in the blink of an eye over a boy. A friend that you've known before the BF had even came along or at least you thought was a friend.  Yeah turn friends against you. All the moral values they claim they have suddenly goes out the door. Well, for this unique situation w/ 2 teen cheerleaders in Texas led right to court. 3 words=Watch Your Back
As first reported by the Dallas Observer, the Title IX lawsuit filed by Liz Laningham -- the mother of former Carrollton (Texas) Creekview High cheerleader Sami Sanches (who is not pictured among the most recent group of Creekview cheerleaders below) -- was thrown out of the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals with the legal equivalent of a good, forceful kick to the rear end.
The following passage comes directly from the legal opinion given in the Laningham-Sanches case. In fact, it's the statement that starts off the lengthy court opinion, which you can read in full at the bottom of this Deadspin post right here.
Reduced to its essentials, this is nothing more than a dispute, fueled by a disgruntled cheerleader mom, over whether her daughter should have made the squad. It is a petty squabble, masquerading as a civil rights matter, that has no place in federal court or any other court. We find no error [with the lower court's judgement] and affirm.
Now, one might wonder how the mother of a high school cheerleader could possibly be delusional enough to think that a claim of a vast school conspiracy against her daughter would be validated by a federal court. In fact, one might also wonder what made her feel entitled enough to cite prior legal decisions that found proof of sexual harassment and discrimination against rape victims and students who happened to bear an unfortunate likeness with Monica Lewinsky, in that aforementioned court claim.
The answer, it seems, is that Ms. Laningham was quite delusional indeed. Among a serial list of issues raised in her original legal writ, the Dallas Observer pulled out the following salient complaints … none of which, one could argue, have absolutely anything to do with the kind of systematic discrimination Title IX and sexual harassment laws are intended to protect against:
1. The school did not remove the freshman cheerleading squad captain after she told Sanches she'd kissed her boyfriend.
2 The way the squad chose jump sequences at homecoming was patently unfair.
3. Rank favoritism.
4. The scheduling of the end-of-year banquet for cheerleaders was too favorable to senior girls.
5. Laningham was threatened with a lawsuit by other parents because she failed to return cheerleading videos.
Ladies and gentlemen, there is a test case in when you know a lawsuit is extraordinarily frivolous. The fact that other parents had to file a suit against Laningham just to get her to return cheerleading squad videos is proof enough that she didn't have the greatest track record of responsible "cheerleading stewardship," for lack of a better term.
