CARL JUNCTION, Mo. (AP) - Lawyers for a southwest Missouri school district being sued by the parents of a boy who killed himself are asking for all electronic communications the student saved.

The filing earlier this month is part of the Carl Junction school district’s response to a wrongful death suit filed last year by the parents of the 14-year-old who hanged himself in his bedroom on March 16, 2003, The Joplin Globe reported (https://bit.ly/1k38PGE ).

The district is asking for all of the student’s Facebook messages, photographs, videos and other communication saved by the student.

The lawsuit - which was transferred from Jasper County to federal court - was filed by Jessica and Mika Nugent in May 2013. They accuse the district of not protecting their son from bullying when he came out as bisexual.
