Q: I have been harassed by a teacher and a staff member of my school and want to know what can be done
I was put on anti-depressants because of the emotional distress they have been causing me for 3 months. And just today an email was forwarded to me by accident of one of them making fun of my depression and completely laughing about my request to be excused from class 1 day to see my psychiatrist in san francisco, calling me a liar when i will be providing a doctor's note. A student with mental condition killed himself 2 months ago and the students all complained they didn't even care to hold a reunion in memory of him, and now they are bullying me laughing about my medical condition. I want to know what can be done. And how much it will cost.
A: More facts are required, but if you have a solid case, a lawyer could take your case on contingency, at little to no cost to you, and sue under Section 504 and other state disability law.
A: GET THE PRINCIPAL INVOLVED AND IF NECESSARY THE SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS OR THE SCHOOL BOARD
YOU MAY NOT BE IN A FINANCIAL POSITION TO GET A LAWYER INVOLVED WHO WOULD CONTACT THE APPROPRIATE PARTIES OR FILE PAPERS TO ADDRESS THIS........MAYBE SOME KIND OF WRIT MANDAMUS..
