The father of a ninth-grade girl expelled from a private Christian school for kissing a fellow female student is suing the school for breach of contract and invasion of privacy. The school rules provide that "any behavior, on campus or away, which indicates that a student has disregard for the spirit of the school standards" will justify a request to the student to withdraw. The father's lawyer says that language is too vague to cover the same-sex kissing episode.
Most of the claimed damages would seem to be for the tort claim, since the father is seeking $1 million.
