Courtroom Battle After School Fight

A mother suing a local county school board presented her case to the North Carolina Court of Appeals Wednesday.

Revondia Harvey-Barrow is suing the Beaufort County Board of Education. Harvey-Barrow says her daughter, Viktoria King, was unfairly suspended for 365 days from enrolling in any school in North Carolina.

Southside High School in Chocowinity punished the teen and other girls after a fight there in January 2008. Harvey-Barrow says it was unfair that her daughter, whom she says did not start the fight, was suspended for a full year, while others were allowed to return to Southside or go to alternative schools.

We are told the three-judge panel who heard the case Wednesday will now deliberate, and a decision will be announced within 90 days.
