Lawsuit Settled On Behalf of Bullied Gay Teen

A gay teenage student identified only as J.L has reached an out-of-court settlement in a case filed because of the continued student-on-student harassment and bullying he received in his upstate NY high school while school administrators took no action to prevent it.

The U.S. Justice Department and the New York Civil Liberties Union reached the settlement in the matter of J.L. v. Mohawk Central School District, which alleged violations of the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution and Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, both of which prohibit discrimination based on sex, including discrimination based on gender stereotypes.
