An assistant coach’s online insults aimed at fellow coaches have lead to a $200,000 libel lawsuit.
The showdown is at Sacred Heart-Griffin High School in Illinois, where a football coach and his assistant claim the former defensive coordinator has libeled them with labels like “pedophile” and “thief” on Facebook, according to the State-Journal Register.
The coaches say they have been dealing with three years of online insults.
Long live online media, because the newspaper has attached a downloadable PDF of the court document for your perusal should you choose.
Let’s just hope that the only lesson students learn from this case is a positive one.
