It will be more detrimental to this kid's future if they allow him back.

Not true. That lesson is taight everywhere, not just here and what most people don't know is that when you sue for something stupid 90% of the time it is thrown out and you have to pay the court costs

The lesson that the kid will learn is that if you cry enough, bitch enough, complain enough, whine enough, etc. you can get your way. The school needs to stand fast with this one and teach the kid what his parents have neglected. Every choice comes with a consequence.

Yep, I just came across that stat when I was looking up info for the punitive damages question. The courts may be a bit silly sometimes, but for the most part judges don't allow stupid stuff to succeed. There are those odd cases, but our court systems are pretty healthy overall.

Yes, but the consequence does not fit the crime.

This will only happen if a sympathetic judge rules in his favor or the school settles with him, but I seriously doubt it will.

I see stuff like this all the time in my job. Someone looks at a person cross-eyed so they file discrimination charges. The charge is bogus, but the law allows them to file and requires a response from the employer. We take the charge, conduct a bare minimal investigation and rule against the charging party. 94% of our charges go “No Reasonable Cause,” and I’d guesstimate that over half of those are bogus charges like this kid’s is going to be.

You will get your day in court, but it’s more than likely not going to go in your favor.

I guess I'm looking at this more from the school's standpoint. So many organizations settle to avoid court or publicity. I'd hope they don't in this case.

Do you thin the punishment is fair?

Expulsion? If that's the established punishment, then yes.

For mooning someone?!!?!? No way should you get expelled for mooning someone. It's dumb, it's childish, it shouldn't have been done to a teacher, but for goodness' sake, he just mooned someone! It's not like he showed her his other potty parts.

I think this punishment is WAY overboard. Suspend him, make him do some summer school, for sure make him write an acceptable letter of apology before he gets back in, but expelling him? For showing his butt? Too much.
