New Jersey Supreme Court Rules on Sexual Orientation Harassment

"HELD: The New Jersey Law Against Discrimination recognizes a cause of action against a school district for student-on- student affectional or sexual orientation harassment. A school district is liable for such harassment when the school district knew or should have known of the harassment but failed to take actions reasonably calculated to end the mistreatment and offensive conduct. The overarching goal of the LAD is to eradicate the “cancer of discrimination.” This Court has liberally construed the LAD to further the Legislature’s broad remedial objectives." New Jersey Supreme Court, February 21, 2007
