Can one fed up father set a precedent to help bullied kids everywhere?

Stephen Feudner of San Francisco has asked a judge for a restraining order against a nine-year-old boy he claims has been bullying his son after the children's school failed to adequately address the problem.

Feudner's son described being shoved, hit and taunted by a school bully, but Feudner told CBS San Francisco that the school, citing privacy issues, wouldn't tell him much about the the bully or the extent of the situation. Feudner called the restraining order his "last resort."

"I tried everything else so why not try that? And it was granted," said Feudner.

The school, Rolling Hills Elementary in Fairfield, Calif., has refused to release the full name and address of the student. The superintendent of the district has made no comment on the story.

The Solano County Sheriff's Department says this is the first order of its kind (and it must be served within five days, otherwise it could become void). Feudner says he'd do it all over again."I'm glad I did it. Not only for my son, for the rest of the children."
