Students Who Were Kicked Out Of School Over Fake Racism Allegations Win $1 Million Settlement – EVOL

Two former students of a California private high school have been granted a $1 million settlement after they were forced to withdraw from the school over fake allegations of racism.

A Santa Clara jury awarded the former students $500,000 each, as well as $700,000 in tuition reimbursement, after the jury sided with them on two of the five claims laid out in the lawsuit.

In 2020, the two students, whose identities were listed in court documents HH and AH, sued the Saint Francis High School in Mountain View, California for $20 million after they were forced to withdraw from the school due to some photos from 2017. The boys were accused of using “blackface” and a host of other racial animus allegations.

The photos in question shows the then-students, all three of whom were 14-years-old, wearing face masks used for acne treatment. The masks start out black when applied but eventually turn green.
