Judge Dismisses Bullying Lawsuit Against Coach

A judge has dismissed a bullying lawsuit filed against a former New Jersey high school football coach.

A former Somerville High School (located about 30 miles west of New York) football player alleged Greg Arakelian bullied him and sabotaged his chances of playing college football.

But the judge found the student had not presented evidence in depositions to prove his case.

Arakelian tells the Courier News of Bridgewater he feels vindicated.

“I’m happy with the judge’s decision. I feel vindicated,” Arakelian told the paper. “It’s been a long process. I just want to move forward now.”

The student's lawyer, Brian Cige, says it was a very difficult case.
