Segment 1: For Jamie Nabozny, the bullying started in 7th grade, progressing for verbal harassment to physical abuse. Only after the beatings landed him in the hospital and he had to move from his home town did he decide to fight back. He sued the school for failing to protect him and won a landmark federal case. On Tuesday, Nabozny joins us to talk about combating bullying by teaching tolerance.
