(Fox News) A conservative law group has announced a lawsuit against a Christian child’s school for failing to take an incident of alleged harassment seriously.
The student, 14, is alleging that he was mocked by both teachers and students at Mater Academy for his open practice of Christianity. Dhillon Law Group, the firm representing the student, is specifically claiming that the teenager was mocked by his science teacher in front of other students for his faith. He was also falsely accused of planning a school shooting by other students, which law enforcement took seriously until determining the report to be a prank.
“Imagine being falsely accused of threatening to shoot up a school. Law enforcement concluded that he was being pranked by fellow students, but that did not stop numerous parents from spreading the false accusation online,” said Dhillon Law Group partner Matthew Sarelson.
