The next chapter of Promgate is being written in a Solano County courtroom.
On May 31, Dixon High School parent Melody Williams and her daughter, Miranda, filed a lawsuit against Dixon Unified School District and Dixon High School Principal John Barsotti seeking damages they say were brought on by Promgate.
Melody and Miranda Williams are suing the school district and Barsotti for $7,500 for costs associated with the prom as well as emotional distress brought on by Promgate according to a story published in the Vacaville Reporter.
On April 28, 35 students from the school’s Junior Class leadership, including Miranda Williams, were denied entry into the school’s prom held at Elks Tower in Sacramento. The students were denied entry into the prom when a bottle of vitamin water containing a small amount of alcohol was found on the bus the students chartered.
