Pine Bush (New York) Anti-Semitism Lawsuit Will Proceed, Court Says


A lawsuit by several Jewish families in upstate New York claiming their children were victims of anti-Semitic harassment at school can proceed, a federal court ruled.

Judge Kenneth Karas of the U.S. District Court in White Plains, N.Y., on Tuesday denied a motion by the Pine Bush Central School District to dismiss the 2012 lawsuit, which also charged school administrators with not doing enough in response to the harassment . . .

Jewish students in the district, which is located 90 miles north of New York City, have complained in recent years of anti-Semitic epithets and nicknames, jokes about the Holocaust, being forced to retrieve coins from dumpsters and physical violence. Fellow students are accused of making Nazi salutes and telling anti-Semitic jokes. Gov. Andrew Cuomo ordered investigations into the allegations of anti-Semitic harassment.

I don’t know if anyone has experienced rampant Anti-Catholic discrimination and harassment at school or had their Rosary confiscated by a school teacher, principal, or cop but perhaps a lawsuit is in order to seek damages and stop the Anti-Catholic discrimination and harassment, and to ask your Governor to investigate.
