Transcript HOUSTON VOICE • DECEMBER 24, 1999 NEWS Around the Nation Expelled student seeks $75 million in harassment lawsuit BOSTON (AP)—A student expelled for allegedly threatening classmates just days after the Columbine High shootings in Colorado is suing Sandwich, Mass. school officials for $75 million, claiming they did nothing to stop the harassment he was getting from fellow students. Ten days after the April 20 Columbine shooting, the unidentified boy, 16 at the time, allegedly listed the initials of four classmates on the bathroom wall and wrote: "You will die." The boy's lawyer, Michael Turner, said the boy was taunted for 18 months by other students. "Can you imagine being in a classroom and you raise your hand and someone behind you who is bigger and stronger says 'Shut up faggot,' and everyone laughs," said Turner. In papers filed in federal court, Sandwich officials acknowledged that the boy told school officials of the harassment, and that they did nothing. Turner said the boy, who is not gay, has been rejected by another school, and his parents can't afford to send him to private school. Fla. man, 45, sentenced to death for murder, mutilation PUNTA GORDA, Fla.—A Florida man was sentenced to death for the murder and mutilation of a 21-year-old man during a sexual encounter, APBnews.com reported Dec. 10. Daniel O. Conahan jr., was sentenced to death for the April 16, 1996 murder of Richard Montgomery. The prosecution contended Conahan lured Montgomery to a wooded area by offering him money to pose nude in progressive stages of bondage. Montgomery's genitals were surgically removed after his death. Prosecutors said that Conahan, an unemployed nurse, believed that if he left Montgomery's genitals intact, police could link him to the crime through saliva left behind from oral sex. A charge of Daniel Conahan Jr., 45, was sentenced to sexual battery was dropped because of a death for the murder and mutiltrfion of a lack of evidence. 21-yeor-old man n Florida. Judge scales back gag order in Shepard case, orders release LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP)—A judge has lifted part of a gag order on the court file of one of Matthew Shepard's killers. The order signed by Judge Barton Voigt allows the public to view court documents in the case against Aaron McKinney, 22, who is spending life in prison. According to the order, 18 documents on file will remain sealed to protect "the sanctity of jury deliberations." The gag was imposed to protect the confidentiality of McKinney and Shepard, but there is no longer a need to prevent the public from viewing the file, Voigt said in his order. McKinney and codefendant Russell Henderson, 22, were sentenced to life in prison without parole for the beating death of Shepard, who was beaten, pistol-whipped, tied to a fence outside Laramie last winter. Outgoing ATF boss thinks bombing suspect Rudolph is dead MURPHY, N.C.—Police searching for accused bomber Eric Rudolph say it is impossible to know whether he is alive, in spite of a statement by the departing director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, who said in an interview that he thinks Rudolph is dead. "My gut instinct is that he is still there, in a cave, and he's dead. That's only my opinion," said ATF Director John Magaw, in an interview with USA Today. "There hasn't been any missing food. There haven't been any missing shoes. No cabins have been broken into. Life isn't sustainable over this period of time if he stayed in there," he said. The ATF, members of the Southeast Bomb Task Force, the FBI and local police have been searching for Rudolph, 33, in North Carolina's mountainous Nantahala National Forest for more than a year. He's accused of six bombings, including the hate-motivated bombing in February 1997 of the Otherside Lounge, an Atlanta nightclub popular with lesbians and gay men. "I don't know how anyone can make a flat-out statement that Eric Rudolph is dead," said Murphy police chief Larry Payne. New study shows Calif, ban on gay marriage would harm kids A study has found that California's proposed ban on gay marriage would adversely affect at least 40,000 children living with gay couples and 100,000 more with gay single parents. Those children could feel ostracized by society if their parents' unions were considered invalid, concludes the review by Michael Wald, a Stanford University law professor. Proposition 22 would force California to recognize only marriages performed between a man and a woman. It will be voted on in March. Meanwhile, in Salt Lake City, an effort has begun to recruit students at Brigham Young University as volunteers to help pass Proposition 22. Jim Backman, director of BYU's Office of Academic Internships, said his office has not yet sanctioned the project as a credit-earning experience, but that it is not unusual for students to serve politically charged internships. In Denver, a proposed constitutional amendment to restrict same-sex marriages in Colorado has been approved by the secretary of state's office and now advances to a 30-day challenge period. If it survives, signatures of nearly 64,000 registered voters would have to be collected to put the measure on the ballot. —From staff and wire reports If you are seriously ill, money shouldn't be an added source of stress.
