Federal court to hear Madison County V Hill

Hill v. Madison County School Board

In 2010 at Sparkman middleschool policy of only punishing sexual harassment if a student was “caught in the act” through witnesses, an admission, or physical evidence lead to the violation of an innocent student. Based on this policy, school officials failed to effectively address repeated sexual harassment of multiple female students by a male student. A 14-year-old female student was recruited by school officials sent her as bait in a sting operation to “catch him in the act.” Mr. Artrip and the firm are representing that student in a complaint against the administrators and schoolboard, and have been vocal advocates for the victim. Speaking about the case with CNN’s Anderson Cooper and Victor Blackwell, Mr. Artrip stated that the school board’s non-adherence to Title IX protections lead to the assault and are currently pursing the civil case to it’s rightful conclusion.
