Excerpts from BULLYING:
1) So far is has not been easy winning these bullying cases in state courts, especially those brought against the schools. Many of these cases are filed as racial or sexual harassment cases in federal court, alleging Title VI or Title IX violations. Oftentimes the plaintiff is trying to get damages from the school and these laws were built to do that.
2) Bullying is more of a contributing factor to suicide than it is a direct cause. Bullies tend to target the fragile. The fragile are more prone to depression. Depression is the usual cause of suicide.
3) But a big problem with lawsuits as solutions to the bullying problem is that they take too long. The case is often brought when the child is 10-13 and going through the bullying but doesn’t go to trial until the child is 15-18. There is such physical and other change during that period that the victim is barely recognizable as being the same person.
