High school student sues city office in Fukuoka Prefecture for her deafness by bullying

August 27, 2013

Although a high school freshman, 15, was bullied by her classmates repeatedly during her junior high school days in Yanagawa-shi, Fukuoka Prefecture, the school didn't take any action to stop bullying. So she lost hearing as a psychogenic disorder.

She filed the lawsuit which asks the city for 20 million yen reparations at the Fukuoka District Court Yanagawa Branch on August 26.

According to the complaint, the student received bullying from immediately after the entrance at the school in April, 2010.

She tended to be absent since the third term, and became hearing loss, so she was unable to follow the spoken conversation in October, 2012.
