On Dec. 5, the judge presiding over the Ferraro v. Glendale Unified School District court case ruled in favor of the District, dismissing the entire lawsuit.
The judge’s decision was based on no causation that linked the tragedy to anything associated with the school personnel or any actions taken by anybody from the District.
On Feb. 10, 2012, Crescenta Valley High School student Drew Ferraro, 15, jumped to his death from one of the buildings on the campus.
In a statement, the GUSD said, “This is a tragedy that has affected a family, and an entire school community. Even though this ruling exonerates the school and the District personnel, the GUSD does not want this decision to overshadow its continuing efforts to do everything we can for all our students, especially those in need.”
