    Thought it might be interesting to see how may frivolous lawsuits we come across. Here is a good one to start with.
    ************************************************


    Student Sues to Change A to A-Plus
    The Associated Press
    MEMPHIS, Mich.

    A high school senior says he earned an A+, not an A, and has sued to get the grade changed to bolster his chance at becoming valedictorian.

    Brian Delekta, who finished 11th grade in 2002 ranked at the top of his class, says he should have received an A+ for a St. Clair County intermediate school district work-experience class in which he worked as a paralegal in his mother's law office.

    Memphis schools award grades on a 12-point scale, with an A+ being a 12. The highest grade awarded by the intermediate school district is an A. Memphis High School gave Delekta credit for an A.

    Diane Delekta said her son, who filed the suit Friday, fulfilled the district's work program requirements and performed professionally at work.

    "It was what he would do if he were a paralegal in a law office," she said. "He prepared documents, met with clients."

    The Memphis school board considered altering its grade policy to allow percentage grades from the countywide district to be factored into its system. The board rejected that option Jan. 29.

    "I heard ahead of time (that the threat of a lawsuit) was out there, but to worry about that would be wrong," board President Harold Burns said.

    The suit names the school principal, superintendent and all seven school board members as defendants. It asks to have the grade changed and to have class rankings, due out Monday, blocked until the case is settled.

    A judge is to consider a restraining order request Monday.
