A new school season starts soon, and with new experiences come new risks for children, particularly incidents of cyber bullying. Recently the online non-profit A Secure Life, using data from Pew Research studies on cyberbullying from the last few years, put together a survey designed around being aware of cyberbullying and how to prevent or stop it.

The former head of Utah Valley University's anti-discrimination office has filed a lawsuit accusing the school of unfairly firing her after she raised concerns about potential discrimination against women and non-Mormons.

Melissa Frost said Tuesday that she faced retaliation for whistleblowing about the university's hiring practices and disregard for reports of harassment. She filed a lawsuit in state court last week.

Utah Republican congressman John Curtis is again defending his actions as Provo mayor over the hiring and handling of harassment complaints against a former police chief.

Curtis released a second statement Wednesday responding to a lawsuit that claims he and the city failed to protect five women from alleged sexual harassment and assault by former Chief John King.

A pair of lawsuits by two former state prosecutors alleging they were retaliated against and forced out of their jobs at the Utah Attorney General's Office for reporting wrongdoing and harassment raises new questions about an office that is only four years removed from a major scandal.

Former Assistant Attorney General Paul G. Amann alleges in his lawsuit that he was wrongly fired in late 2016 for reporting office employees who misused funds and retaliated against whistleblowers.
