A portion of the bullying lawsuit filed against the Polk County School Board by a former Poinciana family may be dismissed, according to Rich Lopez of Bartow law firm Boswell and Dunlap, who is working on the lawsuit for the school system.
Lopez says the part of the suit claiming the school system ignored the Jeffrey Johnson Stand Up for All Students Act of 2008 should be dismissed because the law itself doesn’t provide a remedy for failing to comply with it. The law, according to Lopez, simply says the schools must adopt policies to protect children from bullying or harassment.
