(Scroll down for video) In a unique case, a man asked a judge for an order of protection against a 9-year-old boy.
The judge granted the father’s request and gave him a temporary protection order.
The incident began when Stephen Feudner’s son came home from school and told his father that he was bullied at school.
The 9-year-old bully allegedly punched Feudner’s son in the face. The father went to the school and discussed the situation with school officials.
However, the school officials were not helpful. So in order to protect his son and keep him safe at school, the father went to court and asked the judge for an order of protection against the bully.
Feudner then went back to the school and asked for the full name and address of the 9-year-old boy, who bullied his son. However, the school refused to release that information.
The father had 5 days to serve the order of protection before it became void, but without the child’s information he couldn’t serve it.
The father will ask the court to order the school to hand over the child’s information so he can protect his child.
Feudner hopes that his actions will help other parents better protect their children from being victims of bullies.
