Facebook taunts help trigger bullying lawsuit against a Connecticut prep school
Taunts on Facebook and in text messages figure in to a lawsuit against a Connecticut girls’ high school, Miss Porter’s School. A girl, Tatum Bass, who was expelled in November claims she was bullied online and in person by other students for an unpopular plan for a prom. A typical story is by Vanessa de la Torre on the Hartford Courant, “Miss Porter’s School Sued over Expulsion,” link here. The story was also reported Dec. 12 on ABC “Good Morning America.”
Again, social networking site content is showing up in litigation.
