Student Expelled for Casting a Spell O K L A H O M A C I T Y, Oct. 28
An Oklahoma high school suspended a

15-year-old student after accusing her of casting a magic spell

that caused a teacher to become sick, lawyers for the student

said on Friday.

The American Civil Liberties Union said it had filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court in Tulsa, Oklahoma, on behalf of student Brandi Blackbear, charging that the assistant principal of Union Intermediate High School in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, suspended her for 15 days last December for supposedly casting a spell.

The suit also charged the Tulsa-area Union Public Schools with repeatedly violating Blackbears civil rights by seizing notebooks she used to write horror stories and barring her from drawing or wearing signs of the pagan religion Wicca.

Its hard for me to believe that in the year 2000 I am walking into court to defend my daughter against charges of witchcraft brought by her own school, said Timothy Blackbear, Brandis father.

Outlandish Accusations

Joann Bell, executive director of the ACLUs Oklahoma chapter, said the outlandish accusations had made Blackbears life at school unbearable.

I, for one, would like to see the so-called evidence this school has that a 15-year-old girl made a grown man sick by casting a magic spell, Bell said.

A lawyer for the school district declined to comment.

The lawsuit, filed on Thursday, alleges that Blackbear was summoned to the office of assistant principal Charlie Bushyhead last December after a teacher fell ill, and was questioned about her interest in Wicca.

According to the lawsuit, Brandi Blackbear had read a library book about Wicca beliefs and, under aggressive interrogation by Bushyhead, said she might be a Wiccan. In fact, Blackbear is a Roman Catholic, according to the newspaper Tulsa World.

The interview culminated with Defendant Bushyhead accusing Plaintiff, Brandi Blackbear, of casting spells causing (a teacher at the school) ... to be sick and to be hospitalized, the lawsuit said.

The lawsuit stated that because of the unknown cause of the teachers illness, Bushyhead advised the 15-year-old girl that she was an immediate threat to the school and summarily suspended her for what he arbitrarily determined to be a disruption of the education process.

Oh, you didn't irritate me! I loved the story!
But, I have looked at the website of Broken Arrow, and the website of the Broken Arrow newspaper(there is only one weekly newspaper!)
and there is nothing about any such case!
