A California man says he sought a restraining order against a 9-year-old boy as a last resort after his son was subjected to months of bullying in school.
Stephen Feudner said the Fairfield-Suisun School District, midway between San Francisco and Sacramento, refused to give him any information about the alleged bully, so he decided to take legal action. Seeking a restraining order or civil harassment order against a child under 10 is unusual.
The Solano County Sheriff's Office said the order could become void within days unless Feudner obtains the full name and address of the alleged bully. School officials say giving detailed information on students to other families is against its policy.
Feudner's son said he and the other boy are both students at Rolling Hills Elementary School, although they are not in the same class. But he said the boy calls him names and is physically violent.
“He came up and pushed me, I pushed him back and he punched me in the face and he said ‘Haha, you got punched,’” the son said.
