Posted on Jul 22, 2013

The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals is weighing arguments in a lawsuit brought by the family of a teenager accused of cheating in a 4-H pig-showing competition in South Dakota.

The family of White Lake teenager Bayley Kroupa said she was humiliated and denied due process when she was banned from 4-H competition in 2011 for an alleged ethics violation. They are suing and seeking $850,000 in damages.
