German Court Rejects Defamation Case After Finding Teacher To Be Rabbit-Phobic

A German court has issued a notable ruling in the case of the Rabbit-phobic teacher. The court rejected a defamation case by a teacher against a 16-year-old student who spread rumors that the teacher was terrified of rabbits. The court concluded that teacher was in fact rabbit-phobic.

Marion V., 60, a German and geography teacher, alleged that the student spread malicious rabbit rumors. Kim P. reportedly drew a picture of rabbit on the blackboard of V.’s classroom. Upon entering the room, V. allegedly fled from her classroom in tears. Notably, the article reports that “V. settled a similar suit she brought against a student in 2008, in which the student agreed to stop spreading rumors that V. started crying or went into fits every time she saw a rabbit or heard the animal’s name.”

The fact is that there are some rabbits worth fearing:
