A teenage girl who was dropped from her high school's cheerleading squad after refusing to chant the name of a basketball player who had sexually assaulted her must pay compensation of $45,000 (£27,300) after losing a legal challenge against the decision.

I totally agree with you.
People are too quick to sue in the name of getting justice, when in reality it is often greed which is calling the agenda. I am not saying that is nesesarily what happened here. But if you are going to gamble with a law suite, don't complain you you loose your gamble. It is a terrible thing if she was assaulted, and then kicked off the cheerleaders team, that must have all added up to some pretty bad times for her. But she then decided to take it further when she should have just got on with her life.
This is what you did, Richard Bain: You told a sixteen year old girl that she would be thrown off the cheerleading squad if she didn’t shout the name of the man who raped her. You let cheer coach Sissy McInnis throw her off the squad when she did not.

It's the ole 20-20 hindsight thing. She would have been better off not suing, just getting kicked of the cheerleading squad and taking her issue and going on Oprah or some other similar show. I'm sure she could have been sitting pretty well right now.
