can you elaborate on these answers.
First- what would the arrest be under if she is arrested and charged. Is this a state statue? where can i find the law that pertains to this?
the school says that because other students reported the incident to the school she can be suspended because it is causing a disruption in the school and they can use "nexus" of power even thought the incident happened off grounds- and you tell me what court case are they using to establish this?
The other students will not be suspended- I thought all the students needed to be given the same punishment. Is there a law or statue I can use to argue this?
Also not sure if you answered the question about the school employee who was reported at the strip club. My daughter also said that he was a coach at the school. Why couldn't I sue for negligent since he should have said something to his superiors?
I think I am almost done and sorry with the additional questions, I want to be able to respond and protect the rights of my child. I live in New York.
I know the law has its own response but in terms of the school, the school can not suspend her because the event happened off school grounds- can they use this "nexus" reasoning to suspend her? What court case are they referring to? And I assume they are suspending her because her activities were illegal or because of the establishment and if it is the establishment wouldn't all the students be suspended?
FinallyI see in your response that the employe is not liable to me does that mean that the employee is liable with the school district? How should I expect the school district to respond to the employee- "isn't there something about unbecoming of a professional misbehavior?"
Can you explain the nexus arguement that the school can take action for things that happened off school grounds- i don't think that was answered. Also the legal case so i can read it.
Would the answer changed if my daughter testified that she did a lap dance for the teacher? would that be a police matter or school discipline matter then?
I know you were not there but can you speculate anyway what you think. I really need some ideas so that I can anticipate their answers so I can make a defense.
