Father seeks permanent restraining order against 9-year-old

From page A3 | May 10, 2014 |

FAIRFIELD — Stephen Feudner, whose success in securing a temporary restraining order against a 9-year-old he said bullied Feudner’s son at Rolling Hills Elementary School brought national media attention, wants a permanent court order to keep the child away from his son.

Feudner will be in Solano County Superior Court again Monday for a hearing on his request.

He said the Solano County Sheriff’s Office informed him that Fairfield-Suisun School District officials advised the law enforcement agency, after a deputy’s sheriff’s attempts to serve the fourth-grader with the restraining order, that the 9-year-old no longer attends Rolling Hills.

Feudner said that confirms accounts he’s heard about the child’s status.

A Sheriff’s Office spokesman could not be reached Friday about the matter.

Kelly Morgan, assistant superintendent for the school district, said confidentiality laws do not allow the school district to comment about the child’s status.

Morgan said the school district conducted a recent 2½-hour workshop on bullying.

“We do everything we can in our power to prevent bullying,” she said.

Feudner, whose two sons attend Rolling Hills, said a permanent restraining order represents justice for his older son, who is in the fourth grade. The order also sets a precedent for other parents who are dealing with bullies harassing their children, he said.

Moreover, the 9-year-old named in the court order lives near a Fairfield park where Feudner’s son plays and a permanent court order would protect his son from problems at the park, Feudner said. The order is also needed if the Fairfield-Suisun School District allows the 9-year-old to return to Rolling Hills Elementary, he said.

“I don’t trust the district,” Feudner said. “I want to cover all the bases.”

The temporary order now in place requires the 9-year-old boy to keep at least 2 yards away from Feudner’s son.

Feudner wants a permanent restraining order of three or five years.

“However long the judge and the court will grant it,” he said.

    this guy should spend more time on building mentally strong young men out of his boys instead of all this legal crap,,,, which im betting is going to lead to harassment from other kids because it all seems silly.

    ^^^^^ So true. Bullying has been around forever. As a parent, teach your child to be socially accepted and productive. But also teach your child not to be soft and defend yourself. We have become too hyper sensitive of a society. This father's concerns are admirable, but the kid will be the one truly effected in the long run.

    Usually I would disagree, but a court order is pretty... Well, I was bullied as a kid, and I dealt with it as everybody else did. If you're made a target, and believe me that child has been made one now, then it's just going to get worse.

    I feel all playground disagreements should be settled in court, and with restraining orders. Can we please get a judge and at least three independent lawyers on every school campus?!?!!!!! This will solve all "life learning moments".... So ridiculous.

    I agree, what difference does not make. What the father should be doing is teaching his son to defend himself, as my son did back in Middle school against some dope that tried Pearl Harboring him, on the way home, and the other kid got his butt kicked real good, with a face pounding, from my future Marine Son. Even though it was well off school property, they BOTH got suspended, with me complaining to the Principle, who told me that is how they deal with it. Well I told him, that was how my son is to deal with being attacked, and will continue to do so, with my blessing!!!!!

    We online here do not know what the full details of this case. I trust the father to do what is best for his son. 'Make a man out of him". Well that false bravado is what gets a lot of males a new room in prison, so saying that is wrong. This young boy cannot fight back against gang bullies, weapons and criminal activity. Why isn't anyone saying Let the Child be a Child. He is only 9 and should not have to fear for his life.

    Mesc. I know Mr. Feudner and his sons. This has been a frustrating endeavor and did not need to be. Like most schools today their position on bullying is to ignore and deny it. This could have been handled any number of ways. Mr. Feudner is hoping it helps all the students that are going to school afraid and should not have to.

    So CD Brooks, you know both of his sons were first accused of bullying, not being respectful to staff, etc.? My children attend this school and have contact with both his sons and the so called bully. The other child was harassed so much by Mr. Fruedner they left the school!

    Will the 9 year olds mother be crying that her son was good and wouldn't shoot anyone (in the future) if the child doesn't get help now he will keep being a bully because he LIKES it, even at a new school. Fix it now or arrest him later

    And then the other kid pulls out his .45 and pumps three bullets into your "he knows how to fight" kid. Times have changed people.

    Colored or not, big or small, bullying should not be tolerated at all!!! Teach your children some human manners not animal , respect , respect . Bullying kids are bullied kids at home from parents, or other relatives who are uneducated.

    Good for this father for teaching his child a non-violent way of handling bullies and setting a standard. This is the way society should react. The Courts are there for a reason and it's our tax dollars paying for them so I say kudos to a REAL MAN for stepping up and teaching his child the proper way to defend himself while forcing the system to take a look at how they handling things. Anybody with no more than a toddler's IQ can resort to violence, this man used intelligence and creativity to handling it. If there were more men like this there'd be lower divorce rates.

    Defending yourself doesn't necessarily mean violence. Its giving the boy a false sense of security and making him a bigger target.

    I've seen this dad and his kids at the school. Bullying is a serious issue and I think dad is using the B word to call attention to himself. Before the so called bullying it was a sign that he wore about traffic issues. I feel sorry for his kids, not because I think they are bullied, but because dad is raising them to act like victims, even though they aren't.

    Lisa, you have no clue what Mr.Feudner is all about. He is no "Real Man". I believe he is available as his wife could no longer put up with his BS. Go for it. I think the two of you would be a good match, like dumb and dumber.
