North Andover High Punishes Teen For Giving Drunken Pal Ride Home From Party (page 2)
“If a kid asks for help from a friend, you don’t want that kid to say ‘I’m sorry I can’t help you. I might end up in trouble at school,’” said attorney Wendy Murphy, who is trying to help the Cox family get the school’s decision reversed.
The Cox family filed a lawsuit in District Court on Friday but a lawyer for the school district argued against any kind of injunction. The judge ruled the court did not have jurisdiction.
Meanwhile, the parents of Erin’s teammates have started a petition to support her.
Neither the school district nor its attorney could be reached for comment Sunday, but the Cox family is hoping they’ll listen to the host of supporters who’ve stood behind Erin.
“She didn’t do anything wrong. She did what she thought was right, and I’m very proud of her,” Erin’s mother said.
