Jmarr replied to Terri Harrison's discussion Teacher Bullying Child - School Board Not Helping - What would you do?
"I would find another attorney. Call Peter Helwig at Harris and Helwig.  If he can't help you, he might be able to recommend someone who deals with this type of discrimination. I'm pretty sure your child is considered disabled…"

Jmarr replied to Terri Harrison's discussion Teacher Bullying Child - School Board Not Helping - What would you do?
"David, I don't think it's the child that needs to grow up in this case. It sounds like it's the teacher and administration who are acting like children here. The student appears to be a good kid, and an honor roll student. In that…"

Jmarr replied to Tabby's discussion Attorney help
"It sounds like they just wanted to end their marriage quickly and cheaply, and didn't hire an attorney. Maybe your mom can have an attorney read over a copy of whatever they signed years ago and let her know if there is any way out of it, or…"

"Yeah, chemotherapy pretty much wipes out all your immunity. Also, if you are healthy and vaccinated, you can sometimes still get the virus. Perhaps you get a less severe case, or a new strain, depending on the type of vaccine. So even those who are…"

I live clear in LW. Meeting up would probably be hard. I have a pattern for infant and size 1 cloth diapers and I'm gonna try that. I have a bunch of bigger ones. Thanks, Jennifer!
