The parents of an 11-year-old boy are suing a middle school after a teacher allegedly cut the boy's hair in front of a class.
Alexander Brown, a student at Hidden Valley Middle School, started the school year with prominent bangs. His father, Lutin Brown, acknowledged that the bangs were long but that they did not cover his eyes.
On Sept. 25, Alexander's teacher made him stand in front of the class as the teacher "engaged in an impromptu and resisted haircut," by trimming the boy's bangs "in such a manner that she utterly and completely butchered his hair and his appearance," according to the lawsuit.
Initially there was no damage to the Alexander. "However, it grew within him and made him enormously self-conscious and was disturbing him emotionally," the lawsuit said.
Lutins is requesting $1,000 in compensatory damages and $50,000 in punitive damages.
