Lawsuit filed over expulsion of Louisville high school student with rainbow birthday cake
The mother of a Whitefield Academy student has filed a lawsuit over her expulsion.
Kimberly Alford filed the lawsuit, which our sister station WAVE 3 News obtained a copy of, Thursday in Jefferson Circuit Court on behalf of her daughter, Kayla Kenney.
The complaint states, per Kenney’s parents, Whitefield expelled her because they believed she was gay.
It reads in part:
Whitefield Academy previously said Kenney had violated the student code of conduct numerous times over the past few years.
