W.Va. judge denies student's injunction request

Posted:

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- A Kanawha County judge has denied a high school student's request for an injunction against her principal over alleged threats.

Circuit Judge Duke Bloom on Monday denied the injunction request from George Washington High School student body vice president Katelyn Campbell. She claims her principal, George Aulenbacher, threatened to disparage her to officials at Wellesley College where she plans to attend because she spoke out against a speaker who delivered a controversial abstinence speech at the school.

Aulenbacher has denied Campbell's accusations. He says the teen twisted his words.

Media outlets report that Bloom said that the problem should be resolved through the school system rather than the court.

Motivational speaker Pam Stenzel's speech during an assembly last month was sponsored by faith-based Believe in West Virginia.
