Schools liable in suicides? Court to hear case
from The Courier-Journal
By all accounts eighth-grader Stephen Patton was cheerful and well-liked by most of his classmates at Floyd County's Allen Central Middle School. But a few of them, his family says they discovered, repeatedly abused, taunted and bullied the 13-year-old gentle giant, who stood 6-foot-3, weighed 196 pounds and had a stutter. On Nov. 27, 2007, Stephen placed a gun to his head and took his own life.
