The U.S. Supreme Court has written the final chapter in a long-running legal saga involving the Sandusky Library and an unhappy patron. Spoiler alert: the library wins.

The U.S. Supreme Court has declined to hear the case filed by James Pietrangelo II, effectively ending his lawsuit.

Pietrangelo's bad day at the library came on Oct. 28, 2009, when he confronted library staff about the behavior of other patrons, whom he accused of being too noisy.

Library staff eventually asked Pietrangelo to leave, and police escorted him from the premises.

He sued the library in federal court, alleging “wrongful ejectment, conversion, defamation, intentional infliction of emotional distress, false arrest and breach of contract.”

Ain't this the same stinker that cuffed himself to the White House fence while in uniform?

 Ok. I have to agree with the statement it's how kids are raised these days or not. I am 24 yrs old and I learned at a very young age, manners, golden rule, respect, how to treat your elders etc. my daughter will learn the same. We have so many parents who want to be friends with their kids instead of being a parent to their kid. My daughter tells me when I discipline her "you're not my friend!) I tell her "you know it. I'm mother! And you will respect me and listen"

I think the elders of our society should conjure up parenting classes. I don't know everything about being a parent. I would go to those classes just to learn some new parenting techniques. 

Parents these days need to stick to their guns, tell your kid NO every now and again. Who cares if it hurts their feelings because it's something they really want. If they really want it, they need to earn it.

Sorry I know, off topic. Too bad this guys case didn't go all the way. Maybe he should protest in front of the library?

He got ejected from the library because of the way he acted.  If I remember right he disagreed with the librarian as to who was the boss, her or him.  I guess we can see who won.
