The MSBA's Children Section Presents
2011 Annual Meeting, Elections and CLE
"Cyberbullying: Sticks & Stones Will Break My Bones, But Can Electrons Cause Civil Liability?"
Where children’s taunts and threats have spilled from the playground into cyberspace, how is civil law catching up? Courts have applied old theories to this relatively new phenomenon, including theories of negligence, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and defamation. In addition, Congress and state legislatures have considered and passed bills seeking to address the issue. This presentation will provide caselaw, bills, statutes, and fact scenarios discussing the law’s adjustment to children who increasingly live online.
