More on Star Wars Kid Lawsuit Fri, Jul 25, 03 04:14:01 PM EDT We posted news of the Star Wars Kid lawsuit on Wednesday (click here for that story), but here's more info from The Globe and Mail: In a statement of claim filed last week in their home town of Trois-RiviÃ¨res, the Razas say that Ghyslain was so widely mocked at his private high school that he dropped out. He had to finish the session at Pavillon Arc-en-ciel, a ward specializing in child psychiatry at the Trois-RiviÃ¨res Regional Hospital Centre. Ghyslain "will be under psychiatric care for an indefinite amount of time," the statement of claim says. "The stigma of mental illness can generate social prejudices having severe consequences" on the young man, including making it more difficult for him to enroll in the school of his choice or get a job, or even forcing him to change his name, the document added. The article goes on to say: The statement of claim includes lengthy excerpts that it says come from Internet chats in May between the pranksters. Complete with misspellings, bad grammar and cyber-style acronyms, the exchanges are used in the statement of claim as evidence that the boys lacked remorse. They also brag in them that they evaded attempts by school officials to find the culprits behind Ghyslain's misfortunes. While the video of Ghyslain's antics generated some derisive Internet comments, others felt bad and started raising money for him. One group collected more than $3,000 (U.S.), which they used to buy him an Apple iPod portable music player. In the excerpts from Internet chats filed in court, the four appear to be plotting ways to get the gifts sent to another address so they can keep the iPod for themselves.

I also know we all looked exactly the same at the Trek Expo playing with our Park Sabers! I must say that I think the four pranksters are getting what they deserve for torturing this poor kid. I just gotta say "You the man Star Wars Kid!"
