Rome, January 22 - Italy's Cassation Court on
Tuesday ruled that a teacher who said one of her students was a
"donkey, liar and handicapped" had to pay damages of 280 euros
to the student.
The teacher appealed an earlier, guilty, verdict from a
lower court, saying her choice of words was part of "the
legitimate exercise of the use of critique" pertaining to
teachers.
Italy's highest appeals court disagreed and - in its
judgment 3197 - said that only the use of the word "donkey"
could "reflect criticism of the youth's performance" with the
aim of correcting it.
Having added that the student also was a "liar, handicapped
and a nothing" are "objectively disparaging and indicative of a
desire to be offensive," the high court said.
