This ruling restores my faith in a judicial system in which one parent's hissy fit can hold an entire school district hostage. After school activities are not about winning or losing but about cooperation and good sportsmanship and being inclusive. Coaching young kids is not for everyone -- it takes patience, kindness and a sense of humor. If one kid is disruptive there are ways to deal with it other than throwing a basketball at his head. Sorry if Mr. Hecimovich wasn't invited back but if he hadn't have been a lawyer he never would have carried this so far past reason.

It's been a long road in this classic example of a huge "disproportionate response". But Mr. Hecimovich made his legal "bed", now he must lie in it.

reading that hecimovich will have to pay the costs and fees for the other side is a pure joy.
