We are proud to announce that two of our attorneys were recently featured by two Greater Philadelphia news sources for our firm’s representation of a 16 year old Schuylkill Valley School District student in a school discipline lawsuit pending in federal court. On Saturday, Attorney Eric Winter, lead attorney on the case, was featured in the Philadelphia Inquirer. The original article is not available online without a subscription. Philly.com’s version of the article can be viewed here. Attorney Joshua Prince was then featured on last evening’s WFMZ-TV 69 News regarding the lawsuit. The news story featuring Attorney Prince can be viewed here.
Among the lawsuit’s claims, it is alleged that the school district disciplined the student without a hearing in violation of the student’s rights. The lawsuit further alleges that the school district improperly suspended the student for “disorderly conduct” after the student’s parents sought protection from the school district because a classmate videoed the student and his girlfriend engaged in consensual sex on a school trip, which was then circulated by the classmate to other students. The circulation of the video on the classmate’s cell phone resulted in the bullying and harassment of our client. Prince Law Offices filed suit in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania on our client’s behalf. This lawsuit remains pending.
This story was also covered by the Associated Press and featured as far away as San Antonio, Texas, as well as featured on other news sources, including the Reading Eagle, York Daily Record, MyFoxPhilly.com.
