Family Sues School Amid Claims WiFi Made Son Ill

A family in Southboro, Massachusetts, is suing Fay School over accusations that its strong WiFi made their son ill. The plaintiffs, referred to only as “Mother” and “Father”, report that “G”, their 12-year-old son, suffers from Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity Syndrome (EHS), the same condition that afflicts Chuck McGill, brother of Saul Goodman (née Jimmy McGill) in Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul.

G, who experiences headaches, nosebleeds, nausea, and other physical symptoms due to his condition, was exacerbated by the electromagnetic radiation from the School’s new WiFi set-up, the lawsuit claims. The suit seeks to force Fay School to either use Ethernet cables, disable the WiFi in G’s classroom, or shield the boy from the signals, while also seeking $250,000 in damages.

“We’re trying to work with the school,” said John J.E. Markham, II, the family’s lawyer of Boston law firm Markham & Read. “We’re still hoping to reach a resolution that will allow him to safely be in those classrooms.”

Whether EHS is a genuine medical condition, however, is a grey area. It is acknowledged by the World Health Organisation, but at present considers it as “not a medical diagnosis, nor is it clear that it represents a single medical problem.” More study into the mysterious condition is required before it can be truly acknowledged either way, but this could be key to the family’s lawsuit against Fay School.

    Wifi has got to be the least of your problems, I mean what do you think radio is?

    Um…. how is this the schools fault, exactly? Isn’t it the PARENTS job to make sure he can be there or not? Just as with kids being allergic to certain food and need to get food they can eat during each lunch. Wifi is part of daily life now, it’s a standard that we simply can’t be without anymore so demanding them to use only ethernet cables is preposterous. Heck, even schools in the middle of nowhere use Wifi because the ethernet cables are too ineffective for all the students to use.
    Also, this could easily have been a case of the parents sending their kid there on purpose so that they could hog the money.
    In fact, tHat’s what I bet my money on, actually!
