High School Senior Put His School up for Sale on Craigslist

July 10th, 2018 News

According to Atlanta Journal and Constitution (AJC) a Missouri teenager was banned from graduating with his high school senior class after a prank offering to sell his high school on Craigslist backfired on him.

The senior, named Kylan Scheele, 18, admitted he posted the ad on Craigslist offering Truman High School in Independence, Missouri, for sale at a bargain price of $12,725, according to the Kansas City Star, but Scheele said it was just a joke.  The ad can be seen here:

As punishment for the real estate steal of the decade, the school administration would not let Kylan attend his graduation ceremony.

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) filed a lawsuit against the school district contending that the punishment of disallowing Kylan from attending his graduation violated his free speech.

On June 1st, a judge ruled in favor of the school, disallowing this realtor wannabe from walking at his graduation ceremony.

What do you think? Was the punishment appropriate? Excessive?  Did it infringe on his free speech?  We at Fellows Hymowitz want to know what you think!

Fellows Hymowitz, the Right Lawyers Make a Real Difference!

 

My experience with Steve Hymowitz and his fantastic Paralegal, Lynn was terrific – What an amazing team of people! I had a real case, with real issues, yet Steve believed in me, and worked long hours through many obstacles to help award me for all my pain and suffering!

Prior to Steve, other attorneys had refused my case because they wanted a quick “cut and dry case”.  Steve and his team worked hard to fight on my behalf, even with the many challenges of being out of state, being close to the statute of limitations and my multiple health challenges.  My pain and suffering case was awarded more than I imagined, and I will forever be grateful to this kind, caring, professional and determined Gentleman!

I absolutely recommend the law firm of Fellows Hymowitz, as I believe you will not find better!
