Federal Judge Rules in Favor of Cabot School District

February 29, 2024

The Cabot School District is pleased with Judge Lee P. Rudofsky’s February 28, 2024, ruling in the federal lawsuit filed by Melissa Bosch against the District.

You may recall, on June 9, 2022, at a public Moms for Liberty meeting, Bosch referred to District staff when she stated, “If I was … any mental issues, they would all be plowed down with a freaking gun by now.”

In light of recent school violence nationwide and in order to protect the school learning environment, the District requested Bosch provide notice before attending district events that were unrelated to her own children. Bosch filed suit claiming, among other things, that the District violated her First Amendment rights.

On February 28, Judge Rudofsky granted summary judgment in favor of the Cabot School District, Superintendent Dr. Tony Thurman, and the City of Cabot, dismissing all of Bosch’s claims. The District is committed to keeping its staff and students safe. We look forward to putting this matter to rest and focusing on what matters most: educating students in a safe environment.
