HILLSBORO, Ore. -- A judge has ruled in favor, for now, of a Liberty High School student's wish to wear a "Border Wall" T-shirt to school. 

Addison Barnes was told by school officials that he couldn't wear the shirt because those school officials claimed it violated the school's dress code which forbids clothing with disruptive phrases. 

The judge ruled that the school couldn't prove the shirt was disruptive, even though some students said they were offended by the shirt.
