You gotta love this one. Her kid grows up a stinky loser because she keeps him in a filthy home, and when he kills himself out of shame, she sues THE SCHOOL and gets paid.
MERIDEN, Conn. -- A Meriden woman whose son committed suicide after being bullied by classmates has settled a federal lawsuit with school officials. Attorneys for Judith Scruggs and Meriden school officials said both sides agreed today to dismiss the case but would not elaborate on details. They say the settlement is confidential.
Scruggs had been convicted in 2003 of risk of injury to a minor a year after her son J. Daniel Scruggs hanged himself in his closet. Prosecutors said filthy living conditions in her home led to his death.
Scruggs said classmates kicked and punched her 12-year-old son and made fun of bad breath and body odor. The boy had started sleeping in his closet with knives out of fear.
