“We have become aware of instances where school officials either declined to initiate an HIB investigation into conduct that appeared likely on its face to be the type prohibited by the HIB law, or where school officials instituted HIB proceedings against students whose conduct we believe surely was not the type that the New Jersey Legislature sought to prohibit by enacting the law, in some case for entirely improper purposes,” said John Rue, of the law firm John Rue & Associates, Innisfree’s General Counsel and also its attorney in litigation matters against public schools across the state. “As a result, we are launching a statewide investigation to determine whether these instances are isolated, or if they reflect a systemic problem.”
