Claiming that she was inflicted with emotional trauma, a 12 year old girl and her family are sueing for $400,000 in damages after a classroom screening of the pro-gay movie, Brokeback Mountain. The claim also cites negligence, false imprisonment and the claim that this emotional trauma was intentionally inflicted.
Implications - This lawsuit is from a Chicago family against the city's Board of Education. The incident occurred at the Ashburn Community Elementary and the teacher in question told the students that what happens in her class stays in her class. She already sounded guilty before doing anything. Although homophobia should not be encouraged and tolerated, the movie choice was inappropriate for the setting and young audience.
