Okay, Maybe the Kid Isn’t William Story's Nephew

A A loving London dad has been stuck with £250,000 in legal fees after losing his breach of contract action against Marlborough College.  The extremely expensive ($41,000 a year) prep school says it bounced his son, 17-year-old Rhys Gray for an "appalling" record of "swearing, smoking, and bullying."  His father claimed the real reason was his son’s learning difficulties, and says he was entitled to a hearing

A three-judge panel ruled that since young Gray could be expelled for either "poor progress" or "misconduct," there was no merit to the breach of contract claim.  (Top left: Old Marlburian School Tie, which Rhys will presumably not now be entitled to wear.)
