The Jones Law Group and the Calig law Firm recently filed a federal lawsuit against Ripley Union Lewis Huntington (RULH) School District in Ripley, Ohio for Civil Rights violations.  The Complaint alleges that when minority students reported they were being viciously harassed based on race on the school bus, RULH segregated the minority students and required them to ride in the front of the bus rather than addressing the matter with the offending  students.  Other allegations include frequent use  racial epithets, A Principal telling an African American student that “he looked like a skunk with that hair” and asking the student “why do you always have to pull the race card?”    

Other allegations include  imposing more severe disciplinary actions against minority students, including filing criminal charges against a minority student without merit, and denying minorities the right to publicly address their concerns at school a school board meeting.  The allegations demonstrate a pattern  of pervasive Civil Rights violations and that the school district ignored numerous complaints of racial harassment . The plaintiffs have requested that $6 million be paid in compensatory and punitive damages.

Ripley  is in Brown County along the Ohio River 50 miles southeast of Cincinnati. The population was 1,750 at the 2010 census.
