#BelieveWomen? Pennsylvania girls who falsely accused boy of sexual assault will not be punished, parents of boy sue

From TribLive: The Seneca Valley School District on Monday defended its handling of two sexual assault complaints brought against a male student by five “mean girls” that later reportedly turned out to be false.

The boy’s parents filed a civil lawsuit against the girls and school district in U.S. District Court in Pittsburgh last week.

In a four-paragraph statement released by the Butler County district, school officials defended their actions and said they believe “the lawsuit is without merit.”

“We have followed all applicable laws, and we will vigorously defend ourselves throughout the process,” the district said in response to repeated requests by the Tribune-Review to respond to the lawsuit.

The parents, Michael J. and Alecia Flood of Zelienople, claim their son, only identified as T.F., “was forced to endure multiple court appearances, detention in a juvenile facility, detention at home, the loss of his liberty and other damages until several of the girls reluctantly admitted that their accusations were false last summer.

The boy is being home-schooled due to the bullying he suffered by classmates following the allegations, the lawsuit states.

The lawsuit alleges the boy was further damaged from “gender bias” by school officials and Butler County District Attorney Richard Goldinger’s office, which even after learning the girls’ accusations were false “did not take any action against the females involved,” said attorney Craig Fishman of Pittsburgh, who represents the Floods.

The phrase “Mean Girls,” used in the lawsuit by Fishman, references the 2004 movie of the same name.

The movie details the buds and thorns of the high school experience — deep friendships and happy memories along with painful bullying and gossip that could have a lasting impact.

In the prepared statement released by the district’s media support specialist, Katherine Huttinger, the school district maintained “safety” is its priority.

“The number-one priority of the Seneca Valley School District is the safety and well-being of our students, staff, parents and volunteers who enter our buildings. We have policies and procedures in place to protect individuals, and we communicate to all employees on these policies and work hard every day to provide a safe and caring learning environment for all,” the statement said.

The school district noted it still has not been served with the lawsuit.

“Because this situation involves a lawsuit and ongoing litigation, and also because of federal privacy laws protecting student information, the school district cannot comment further on the details of the lawsuit or the situation,” the statement concluded.

The Floods seek unspecified civil damages against the girls’ parents, the school district and Goldinger’s office.

I’m glad the Floods are suing the 5 false accusers and the Seneca Valley School District. For many, the only language they hear is a lawsuit.

If the Floods have a GoFundMe drive, I will definitely donate.

And this is why they keep doing it no retribution for the crime. And what signal does this send out to others who might be thinking of doing the same thing. You have to set an example of what happens when you break the law. I would think they have a good case with all that has been done to this boy and his whole life disrupted because of it. If they let this slide then what they did to Kavanaugh is open season on anyone who opposes the their agenda. They need to throw the book at these girls… Read more »

Mean girls will likely grow up to be vice girls.
Just fruits will be their reward. I believe in karmic debt.

The boy was violently removed from class in wrist and leg shackles as if he were Charles Manson, and all with the sanguinary enthusiasm of the far left educationistas willing to destroy his life as a stand in for destroying America. Just as obviously as there’s no end to the evil in our schools is the fact the Republicans’ empty rhetoric only emboldens the next outrage in these schools. At the upper reaches in the left, the puppetmasters authoring the thoughts of these local educationistas may be on to something, accelerating the final destruction of America—which they haven’t achieved yet… Read more »

Vile Killary Rotten Clinton should be roped off and left dangling for the vultures! You may have silenced Juanita Broderick, Monica Lewinski, Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey but, you could not destroy them, their mere presence on earth make your life a living hell.

How is it that people can’t see what a double standard this is? I suppose that’s precisely it. They are trying to create a “new normal” that includes unfairness.

Don’t think this isn’t going on everywhere. Our young men are being demonized for normal teenage/male behavior often with full participation by the women. Girls are not innocent especially high school girls-good grief! I’m glad they are suing I hope they get a bundle. Frustrating we never hear about the boys & men’s whose lives are impacted and sometimes ruined by false accusations. Like below. Two Students Hooked Up. It was Clearly Consensual. He Still Spent $12,000 Defending Himself.

The girls & the school district should be forced to pay for the boy’s home-schooling., at the very least.

Sadly, it seems absolutely zero investigation went on here. I hope the school is prepared for what might happen to the innocent boy. He is being bullied and we have heard all too often what can happen. Has this school learned nothing from all the cases like the Jackson Bradley accusation several years back? It destroyed four young men.
The school is derelict in protecting ALL the lives involved here. Sue them and sue them big. This behavior has got to stop.
