Southern District of California Community Outreach

Cyberbullying - Classroom to Courtroom: Can the Constitution Rein in the Bullies?

As educators, parents and law makers grapple with the issue of cyberbullying (bullying through electronic means) across the country, many of the decisions they make result in intervention from the judicial system. Legal ramifications exist for each stake holder; educators are concerned with liability; students want privacy and to exercise their free speech rights; and law enforcement officials need to keep everyone safe and enforce the law. During this hour and a half long interactive program, a panel of experts will explore legal issues and developing case law surrounding the issue of cyberbullying.

Laura E. Duffy, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of California
Oscar Garcia, Deputy District Attorney
Ruth M. Hargrove, Professor, California Western School of Law
Rueben Littlejohn, Chief, San Diego Unified School District Police Department
Jeffrey P. Wade, Jr., Stutz, Artiano, Shinoff & Holtz
