Look at the happy students! Imagine the infra-cranial chaos behind every single one of these kids as their still-developing brains grapple with the leap from the innocence of childhood to the fraught and complex interrelations, interactions, politics, and power of adult relationships!
This week, Sr. U.S. District Court Judge Donovan W. Frank (D. Minn.) dismissed all three allegations in a student’s complaint against St. Paul Conservatory for Performing Arts. Plaintiff’s complaint stemmed from the discipline that had been imposed on him regarding complaints of other students that he had sexually harassed them.
While the motion to dismiss was pending, however, U.S. Magistrate Judge Franklin L. Noel (D. Minn.) allowed the Plaintiff to amend his complaint to add a claim for negligence. Therefore, there is still an active pending lawsuit, but, out of the blocks, plaintiff’s claim does not seem compelling.
