Facebooking a discrimination case

Florida Parents for Athletic Equity will be following through on their decision to file a lawsuit against the Florida High School Athletic Association over the latter's policy to reduce the number of athletic contests for all teams except football.
And they will also be updating the happenings in the case on Facebook. There has been a lot of discussion (in my circles at least) recently about new technology/media and sport: Twitter, Facebook, etc. Sports Illustrated even did an article on athletes who tweet.
But this will be interesting. And helpful to people like us who read news accounts of cases and wonder about some of the facts: what is verifiable, what might have been misconstrued, etc. So it will be nice to be able to read Facebook updates on the case next to news accounts.
