The Antlers Public School District is facing yet another lawsuit in response to the recent suspensions of middle school students involved in a prescription drug incident on school property during school hours.
The first suit came from the Thatcher family after their daughter was suspended for the rest of the 2011 school year for having been in possession of a prescription medication that was a generic non steroidal anti-inflammatory drug.
The newest suit was filed on March 23, 2011 and was filed by the Storie family. Mother and father, Melody and Sean Storie are suing for the violation of their daughter's Constitutional and Civil Rights and in turn are asking for $10,000.00 in civil relief.
According to Storie’s lawyers paperwork, the school had no proof that Storie took, or was in possession of anything other than an over-the-counter medication. Nonetheless, she was suspended for the remainder of the school year and was banned from attending school functions (which included 8th grade graduation).
Antlers Independent School District filed a Notice of Removal. This document constitutes that under 28 U.S.C. § 1446(d) a Notice of Removal has been filed in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Oklahoma removing the case to the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Oklahoma.
