2nd Circuit Provides Handy Legal Definition of “Tea-Bagging”

From Cioffi v. Averill Park High School, et al., No. 04-5593-cv (2nd Cir. Apr. 4, 2006):

Tea Bag

In early October 2001 defendant McGreevy, the president of the Board of Education, received a letter from Lauren Ashdown, a parent of a high school football player. Ashdown relayed stories she had heard of disturbing misbehavior in the boys’ locker-room such as a “shampoo bottle [being] shoved up [a student's] rectum.” Cioffi and another administrator investigated Ashdown’s allegations. The investigation led to an October 12, 2001 interview with a student on the football team. The student, a 14-year-old freshman, told Cioffi that he had been “tea-bagged” by other football players. Tea-bagging is a hazing act — indeed a form of sexual assault — during which the victim is pinned down on the floor by several players while another player rubs his genitalia in the victim’s face.
