A father in Northern California got fed up with his 9-year-old son being bullied at school, so he filed for a restraining order against the alleged 9-year-old bully, and got it.

“Apparently the little boy ran around the track, came back and punched my son in the face,” said Stephen Feuder. When the school district refused to do anything about it, he asked a judge for a restraining order against the boy, which was granted.

“It was my last resort, and I’m glad I did it,” Feuder said. “Not only for my son, but for the rest of the children.”

Some parents disagree with what Feuder did.

“What does that say? Every time you have a problem with somebody, you’re just going to file a restraining order against somebody? This is the real world,” said parent Lacie Stover.

The order has to be served on the boy within five days or else it becomes void, and the school district won’t release the boy’s name to Feuder. He’s asking a judge to force them to do that.
