Wisconsin Parents Sue Over "Time-Out" to Middle School Student

Jonathan Turley reports today that the parents of a student at Greenfield Middle School in Brookfield, Wisconsin have filed a $50,000 calim against the school for false imprisonment and battery because the school gave their daughter a “time out.” The full story is available here. Maybe I should be worried. If this claim is recognized, I am going to have to make sure we have "parental immunity"!

This type of lawsuit is a little ridiculous. In a few years, i'm sure these same parents will be suing the middle school for not teaching the student enough discipline and manners. If this is granted, couldn't "in-school suspension" in H.S.'s be a form of false imprisonment? How about young children in day cares?
