United States Supports Students in Anti-Semitic Bullying Case

As reported in the New York Times, the United States today filed a statement of interest supporting the plaintiffs in T.E. v. Pine Bush Central School District. T.E. is a federal civil rights case brought by three Jewish families whose children were victims of pervasive anti-Semitic harassment in Pine Bush schools. The U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York concluded that the evidence “is sufficient for a jury to find that the district failed to respond to pervasive anti-Semitic harassment in its schools,” and that the case should go forward to trial.
