Inside the Brunswick Bullying Lawsuit

About This Project

The courts have seen fit to seal and keep from public view much of the testimony from depositions given by key figures in the recently-settled lawsuit brought by Chaz Wing, a former Brunswick junior high school student who says he was bullied and even raped in a school bathroom.

But portions of the transcript of those proceedings found their way to WCME, and with all due respect to the powers-that-be, we just had to go there.

Here are two segments of Friday’s WCME Midcoast Morning Buzz. In the first, we read to you transcripts of school department attorney Melissa Hewey’s graphic and controversial questioning of Chaz Wing.

In the other, we directly recall the back-and-forth between Chaz Wing’s attorney and school superintendent Paul Perzanoski on the nature of Perzanoski’s alleged “investigation” of the bullying of Chaz Wing.
