Education Law Questions? Ask an Education Lawyer
HelloThis is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.This is outrageous. The entire school system country wide has run amok.When you say he is banned - are you saying they have suspended him pending an investigation or he has been expelled?
Thank you.So there is an investigation as per law and school policy. And as per policy, a student may be suspended pending investigation.I suggest at this point, you can only wait to see what the investigation reveals. If they decide your son is "guilty" then I suggest you will want to request a hearing on the matter. Now, at this time, you can consult with a local attorney to represent your son in this matter and also to discuss any type of defamation case that may be an option because of the Mother and the other student spreading these lies that have harmed your son's reputation within his school community and among his peers.
A defamation lawsuit would have basis regardless of the outcome of the investigation by the school.
You would want a local attorney who would take this matter on a contingency; meaning that based on any monetary settlement he would get from the parents of the child the attorney would get a percentage as a fee.
I suggest you can contact the Texas Bar Association for a Legal Referral service. (###) ###-#### ***** through Friday between 8:30 AM and 4:30 PM.
