Raymond J. Seigler and Ashley L. Matias Represent 13-Year-Old Victim of Racist and Sexist HarassmentJul 30, 2021
Raymond J. Seigler and Ashley L. Matias are representing an East Brook Middle School student in her suit against the Paramus School Board and her bully. The student, the only Black child in her class, was subjected to repeated racist and sexist harassment that the School was aware of but failed to stop. The harassment included heinous racial slurs, slander designed to ostracize the student, and threats of violence. As a result, the student’s mental health declined. She no longer wanted to attend school and suffered from stress-related injuries, eventually receiving psychological counseling after threatening to harm herself. Her parents considered leaving the country.
