Recently in Montclair, the 9th U.S. District Court of Appeals threw out an appeal by the family of the 14 year old Montclair boy who killed himself. Anthony Soltero, with other boys, skipped school to attend an immigration rally and was warned by the DeAnza Middle School vice-principal they could have been arrested for truancy. Soltero shot himself later that night. The 9th U.S. District Court of Appeals judge ruled in congruence with the original San Barnardino County Superior Court ruling that stated that Soltero’s suicide was not a result of excessive punishment, negligence, nor was it foreseeable.
