Moderator — The WISH-TV investigative story on a 1998 hazing case at Carmel High School shows that the school was not required to release its settlement payment to a swimmer who alleged that three other swimmers harassed, bullied and sexually assaulted him when he was a first-year swimmer. Clearly, taxpayers in Carmel have a right to that PAYMENT information PAID WITH CARMEL TAX DOLLARS — as a similar hazing case at Poway High School demonstrated was right and necesary to reveal so far as the amount was concerned. I hope Indianapolis stations or the Indianapolis Star newspaper can get those records.
Here is a similar case in Michigan and background on that Poway High School case which was investigated by the San Diego Tribune. The TribuneÂ filed a FOIA request and obtained the amount.
