House panel considers right to sue about school bullying

Giving families the right to sue school officials over the handling of bullying incidents was the focus of a House committee public hearing.

CONCORD — Trial lawyers and parents urged lawmakers Tuesday to create a right for families to sue public school officials that permit bullying — in person or online — to go unpunished in New Hampshire.

But education leaders warned the proposed remedy was so extreme it could spark a “slew” of frivolous lawsuits and allow the reported bully to sue the school district.
