Concord-Carlisle faces $2m bullying lawsuit

A former Concord-Carlisle High School student who says she was mercilessly bullied for a year and a half while administrators ignored her pleas for help filed a $2 million federal civil rights lawsuit Monday against the towns of Concord and Carlisle, the Concord-Carlisle school district, and three school officials.

Isabella “Belle” Hankey, now 18, alleges in the suit that the abuse — which she says included death threats, crude slurs carved into her car, and feces smeared on her car — caused her to suffer a pulmonary embolism and finish out her senior year in an alternative school program.
