Lawyers would, I suspect, have to prove she believed he was really going to kill himself, and not just making a lame ploy for sympathy as is more common in these situations.

FTA:
Texts show he wavered in his plan to follow through with the suicide, at one point getting out of his pick-up truck.
The court heard that Ms Carter, who was then 17, replied: "Get the f*** back in the car."

She was only helping him. She gave him the encouragement he needed to achieve his goal.

Been done with myspace bullying. Victim's family won the case.

In civil or criminal court?

In Massachusetts? I think one of the issues here is that goading someone into killing themselves might not be illegal in Massachusetts. So it's a question of law, rather than culpability.

Found guilty of manslaughter.
