Facebook court decision helps young cyberbullying victims
The Supreme Court of Canada ruled Thursday that a Nova Scotia teenager has the right to remain anonymous in a court battle against a cyberbully.
The teenager launched a defamation lawsuit over a fake sexualized facebook profile created in 2010. She was 15 at that time.
The court ruled in her favour because children have quote "an inherent vulnerability."
John Morrone, vice principal at Davidson Road Elementary in Lake Country, has developed curriculum on "digital citizenry," and says this sends a strong message to bullies that victims won't be re-victimized.
