Transcript HOUSTON VOICE • FEBRUARY 4, 2000 NEWS 11 Student says school didn't stop anti-gay harassment > Continued from Page 5 > Continued from Page 5 New legal ground: officials responsible 1 lenkle's case builds on a 1996 Lambda victory in a lawsuit brought on behalf of Jamie Nabozny, where after a jury verdict finding liability, school officials in Ashland, Wisconsin agreed to pay almost $1 million tor ignoring Nabozny's abuse. Since then, similar cases in California, Massachusetts, New York and Washington have drawn national attention to the problem of anti-gay harassment and violence in schools. Henkle's case differs from the Nabozny case in its charges of First Amendment violations, and because the plaintiff seeks punitive damages against individuals, rather than the school district, according to Lambda staff attorney Doni Gewirtzman. Under the 11th amendment, Gewirtzman said, it is unlawful to sue a state entity tor damages in federal court. In Nevada, unlike in Wisconsin, the public school system is considered a state entity and can't be held financially responsible for past wrongs. The school district can, however, be sued for forward-looking relief, in this case Henkle's high school diploma. School officials can also be sued as in dividuals, and Henkle's case seeks punitive damages against all eight defendants, Gewirtzman added. Henkle v. Gregory also raises state law claims of negligence, negligence of supervision, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and negligent infliction of emotional distress, and seeks unspecified compensatory damages. Lambda has asked for a jury trial, Gewirtzman said, and expects to begin the discovery process within a few months. In addition to financial compensation, said Gewirtzman, the best possible outcome for the case would be that it "send a message to school officials around the country that when lesbian and gay students are being beaten up, they must take action. It's unacceptable to just send the student to another school."

The boy's grandmother and mother sued the Cumberland County Board of Education, seeking more than $10,000 in damages. The lawsuit, filed Jan. 12, charges that the school system failed to protect the former Westover Middle School student, now 16, from his alleged assailants, who attended Westover High School less than 200 feet away. It also charges that school administrators were aware that woods near the school had been "repeatedly used for assaults, drug use and other illegal activity, but still failed to take proper and adequate safety measures." Westover Principal Reginald Ennett said there never has been a problem with students trespassing onto his schools grounds in his three years there. The woods near the school are not a problem, he said. In 1997, Westover High student Chris Eggleston was murdered in woods near the school. The student said he was sodomized every day for two months beginning in September 1996. He finally told his mother about the attacks on Oct. 22, 1996. His ordeal began as harassment, when the high school students would accuse him in phone calls of being a homosexual and threaten to kill him. Within weeks, the boys began coming to the middle school from the high school. The student said they forced him at knife point into the woods, where they raped him. "I was embarrassed," he said in an interview. "1 thought 1 deserved it. They made me feel bad about myself, and I thought they were going to kill me and they were going to get my grandma." One of the two alleged assailants, who was 15 at the time, was convicted of rape, sentenced to three months' probation and ordered to perform community service. The other boy was never prosecuted, but is now in prison for another crime. Don Massey Cadillac 2000 SEDAN DEVILLE IN STOCK, READY FOR IMMEDIATE DELIVERY!
