Meyer took her own life in late February. The civil lawsuit was filed Wednesday in Santa Clara County Superior Court. USA Today obtained the lawsuit. The lawsuit says Meyer spilled coffee on a Stanford football player who allegedly had sexually assaulted a soccer teammate. It also said that Meyer received a formal written notice on the evening of Feb. 28 — the same night she died — that charged her with a “Violation of the Fundamental Standard.” The violation put her diploma on hold a few months before she was supposed to graduate, USA Today reported. Her parents argue in the lawsuit that the notice came “after-hours” while Meyer was “alone in her room without any support or resources.” The lawsuit says that Meyer responded to the email “expressing how ‘shocked and distraught’ she was over being charged and threatened with removal from the university” and received a follow-up email...

"We ask that you please discuss the day’s events with your child, emphasizing the seriousness of this situation."

    FEARS are growing that the $300 monthly child tax payments could tempt as many as 1.5million parents to quit their jobs. As President Joe Biden considers whether to extend the payments until 2025, many have argued this could lead parents to leave the workforce. 1Currently parents don't need to be working to benefit from the monthly payments According to a recent study, as many as 1.5 million parents could leave the workforce due to the extended payments, as reported by CBS News. They would represent 2.6 percent of all working parents. The study was done by University of Chicago economist and expert on poverty and safety nets Bruce Meyer. While the earlier version of the benefit required families to owe taxes on their incomes to qualify, currently parents don't need to be working to benefit from the monthly payments. "The proposed expansion would get rid of the strong work incentives under the prior CTC; it would essentially eliminate a tax credit that encouraged work and replace it with something that discourages work," said Meyer. Because of these concerns, many, including...
