That's the price Nick and his parents, Dennis and Regina Hurshman, say they have been paying since September when they sued St. Mary's and the Diocese of Charleston.
Evidently these parents believe that lawsuits are just another form of state lottery and should not be taken personally by the people whose money they want lawyers to steal for them.

I have been very surprised by the ideas expressed here. From what I read, it seems the issue was not just the use of a word, but the treatment of the child since. This "teacher" is the one stealing! She's stealing from the community by mistreating children based on her value system and setting a horrible example for every student she comes into contact with. I sounds as if she's the worst kind of racist the kind that hide from the real world by teaching in a school. If the school decides not to fire her, they should be sued. They should have to pay until it is no longer cost effective to keep a person that violates the civil rights of others. This is not to say there aren't good teachers. There are great teachers. THIS is not a great teacher!
