Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

Ohio law requires every school district to not only have an anti-bullying/anti-harassment policy in place, but to enforce that policy. The law defines “harassment, intimidation and bullying” to be any intentional written, verbal, electronic or physical act that one student has taken against another student more than one time that resulted in either physical or mental harm. The bullying must also be sufficiently severe, persistent or pervasive, to create an environment that is threatening, intimidating or abusive for the victim. If the student was bullied and the school has refused to enforce their anti-bullying policy under ORS 3313.666 http://codes.ohio.gov/orc/3313.666, you can file suit against the district for infliction of emotional distress on your child and seek monetary damages against the school for not properly investigating and enforcing their anti-bullying policy as required by law.

The local lawyer you obtain will send a letter to the school ordering the video to be preserved as evidence when they file the suit.
