Alex Standall and Montgomery de la Cruz's fight took place on a school day when Alex Standall was walking to school and Montgomery de la Cruz was driving and almost hit Alex, as a result Alex and Monty had started a fight with many students as spectators.[1]

It was called into a hearing by the Student Honor Board since the fight had taken place outside of school grounds, on the street by the tennis courts.  


Alex Standall was walking to school until Montgomery de la Cruz had almost run him over with his jeep, much to Monty's and Justin's amusement. Justin Foley was sitting in the passenger's seat. They both told Alex to calm down after Alex's angry outburst, but Alex persistently demanded Monty to leave the car and to fight. Monty told Alex not to start anything, but Alex pushed Monty down and then students gathered to watch and record the fight. Monty landed a punch on Alex while he pushed him down, which caused his lip to bleed. Clay Jensen walked along, while he listened to Hannah's tape, he then spotted the crowd, pushed through to see what was happening and started to watch. The fight was three minutes of Monty and Alex punching and pushing each other, until it ended with Monty continously punching Alex, who he had pinned down and couldn't get up, causing bleeding to occur on his face. Mr. Porter then came over and broke up the fight. Mr. Porter asked Monty what was happening and took them both into the school to deal with it. 


The Honor Board was granted the power to arbitrate the conflict between Alex Standall and Montgomery de la Cruz. The emergency meeting of the Honor Board for that case had six acting members and was a full quorum (as stated by Marcus). Marcus Cole, acts as meeting president and Courtney Crimsen as recording secretary. Other members included Sheri Holland and Clay Jensen.

Despite Mr. Porter's claim of the Board's autonomy of decision, he and the vice principal were present during the meeting and voiced various concerns and warnings. The decision of three days of suspension was also ambiguously proclaimed by the Board yet enforced by the School with no obvious formal request or confirmation from either side.[1]

Alex: "To protect the students at this school?"
Marcus: "Yes, Alex. That's what the Honor Board is for, to settle disputes among students, so they don't spill out into the hallways"
Alex: "Yeah, the Honor Broad, 'cause you're all so honorable."
Mr Porter: "Alex, this happened off-campus. So, the alternative is the police."
Alex: "Okay. Great, let's make a call then"
Courtney: "No one need to make a call. There's no crime. We can deal with it here."
Alex: "What, so anyone can get away with anything at this school and no one gives a fuck?"
Jane Childs: "Language, Alex, please."

Courtney: "We're just saying that it was no one's fault. Okay? It just happened."

Alex: "Yeah, see? I lost my shit. It's my fault."
Mr. Porter: "Goddamn it, hey! Watch your language!"
Alex: "I'm taking some fucking responsibility. Since you guys can't."
Courtney: "If Alex says it was his fault-"
Marcus: "Doesn't matter what Alex says."
Monty: "But it was his fault."
Marcus: "No it's your fault."
―  Aftermath of the fight, school Honor Board decision [continued][src]
Alex: "It's not his fault."
Clay: "Maybe it's all your faults, I mean did that ever occur to any of you?"
Marcus: "Okay. So, Montgomery, it is the decision of the Honor Board that you are to be suspended from Librty High School for three consecutive school days starting tomorrow"
Monty: "That's fucking bullshit."
Alex: "That is fucking bullshit"
Mr. Porter: "All right. That is enough, or you are both gone."
Marcus: "And, um, you Alex, you're going to be let off with a warning."
Monty: "Oh, come on!"
Alex: "What?"
Marcus: "With a warning this time."
