The 11th federal circuit court has ruled that nothing requires school
districts to protect children from sexual harassment in school. This
case, Aurelia Davis vs. Monroe County, Georgia, has just been accepted
for hearing before the U.S. Supreme Court--it comes up in November. The
arguments appealing this 11th court decision are being prepared by the
National Women's Law Center (NWLC) and NOW Legal Defense and Education
Fund (NOWLDEF). Groups wishing to file amicus briefs (friend of the
court) may contact Yolanda Wu at NOWLDEF: ywu@nowldef.org.

Linda Purrington,
