Mother Suing New Jersey School for “trying to make her kid Muslim,” Judge Accepts Case

A New Jersey mother is suing her son’s school after she said her child was forced to watch Islamic conversion videos in school.

Libby Hilsenrath filed the lawsuit in January 2018 on behalf of her 12-year-old son against the Chatham School District and Board of Education, prompting the school district to file a motion to have the case dismissed. However, federal Judge Kevin McNulty said that he will not dismiss the case, adding that it must be decided in court. Hilsenrath’s lawsuit asks for declaratory and injunctive relief, damages, and legal fees.

The school superintendent Michael LaSusa, assistant superintendent Karen Chase, Chatham middle school principal Jill Gihorski, Social Studies supervisor Steven Maher, and Social Studies teachers Megan Keown and Christine Jakowski have also been named in the lawsuit which was filed as a civil rights complaint.
