A Woman Sues After Her Son Doesn’t Make Varsity

There’s a woman in St. Louis whose son is a junior in high school.

And she just filed a federal lawsuit, because her son didn’t make the varsity soccer team.

At his high school, the JV team is all freshmen and sophomores.

He played on the JV soccer team for his first two years. When he didn’t make the varsity team this year, he wasn’t allowed back on JV.

It’s just for the younger kids.

His mom thinks that’s unfair. So, she’s suing the school for age discrimination.

***UPDATE- The judge denied the parent’s request to let the student play on the JV team****
