FILE - In this June 9, 2017, file photo, Grant Berardo, a student at Wall High School, flips through his 2017 school yearbook in Wall, N.J.

Berardo's Trump T-shirt was digitally painted a nondescript black even though the shirt did not violate the school's dress code. Susan Parsons, the Wall High School yearbook adviser who was suspended after photos of two students were altered to remove President Donald Trump's name on their clothing is now suing the district. Parsons says school officials requested the changes in 2017 but then set her up to "take the blame." (Andrew Mills/NJ Advance Media via AP, File)
