Family Sues School Amid Claims WiFi Made Son Ill
Ashley Allen / 3 years ago
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.
