A Shock to the Conscience: The Due Process Clause and Corporal Punishment.
Dowling-Sendor, Benjamin
American School Board Journal, v188 n4 p62-63,78 Apr 2001
In a case involving an injured football player, an 11th Circuit judge viewed a coach's refusal to stop a fight as corporal punishment. Federal courts in five circuits have ruled that excessive corporal punishment violates the Due Process Clause if it is so brutal and harmful that it shocks the court's conscience. (MLH)
