In May 1999, the U.S. Supreme Court, in "Davis v. Monroe County Board of Education," held that school districts can be liable for damages under Title IX for failing to stop peer sexual harassment. The case involved school staff's disregard of a fifth-grader's alleged harassment by a male classmate. (MLH)
