- New Jersey's Hunterdon Central and Flemington-Raritan Boards of Education are being sued by a teenager allegedly bullied from fourth grade onward by other students and even some school employees.
- According to the suit, filed in late February by attorney Brian Cige, the bullying--which continued from fourth grade through high school and led to debilitating health issues--included taunting over the boy's physique, hair and perceived sexual orientation, as well as poking, "pantsing," having kickballs hurled at him until he was doubled over and cyberbullying via Facebook.
- The suit says that the districts were made aware of the issues and did nothing, but the districts have yet to file their answers to the complaints and no court dates are currently set.
