Bullied Australian in A$1M payout


Benjamin Cox, now 18, was regularly teased and beaten from the age of five by an older pupil, leaving him with psychiatric problems, a court heard.

He was awarded A$213,000 (US$177,000, £90,000) plus a lifetime income that is likely to take his payout beyond $1m.

Australia’s PM has made plans to give teachers more power to tackle bullying.
