California Student Sues Over "C" Grade
A Fresno eighth-grader is suing her school over a C grade she received last year in physical education class. The student, who runs track and has a straight-A average, claims the PE teacher discriminated against her because she is African-American. Her father last year sued the county for false arrest, a suit the county settled for $700,000.
Hey, if nobody ever used the court system, Law and Order would go off the air.
