"Kansas Man Sues Former School For Ignoring Anti-Gay Bullying"

A 2010 graduate of Blue Valley High School in Kansas is suing his alma matter for failing to protect him from anti-gay bullying while he was a student. The student experienced beating, including kicking, punching in the face, hitting, kicking him out of his chair, placing his hand on a hot burner in cooking class, spraying shampoo bottles full of urine on him in the locker room shower, and throwing ball at his face during gym class that caused chronic sinus problems due to repeatedly breaking his nose. According to the suit, his reports of bullying were met with “indifference, inaction, or where some action was taken, the action was wholly inadequate and ineffective.” KCTV has more background on the suit.
