Weird News of the Week- Now this is just plain stupid

Yahoo! News - Judge Tosses Out Teen's Homework Lawsuit

I am sure that there are more awkward news out there but I wanted to adress this one because it is really stupid. The fact that this case actually made it before a judge shows how stupid, the attorney handling this case is. I mean how did this guy make it out of Law school? In my opinion, he needs to be suspending frm the Bar for about a year and then he will know not to insult the leage system. The story is below.

CHICAGO (Reuters) - A judge has tossed out a Wisconsin high school student's lawsuit asking for summers free of homework and may order him to pay the state's costs, court officials said on Wednesday.

Milwaukee County Circuit Judge Richard Sankovitz on Tuesday called 17-year-old Peer Larson's suit frivolous and said his complaint should be directed at the school board.

The Wisconsin attorney general's office may ask the judge to order Larson to pay the state's court costs.

Larson, of Hales Corners, Wisconsin, had asked that the state schools superintendent on down to his local school district and math teacher be barred from assigning homework over the summer.

Larson and his father said the problem arose when he was given three assignments just before the start of summer vacation to prepare for an advanced precalculus class that began last fall.

The younger Larson said he failed to get all the work done because he had a summer job as a camp counselor.
