A mother of a grade school student in Downers Grove, Illinois has filed a lawsuit on her daughters' behalf against Downers Grove Grade School District 58. The lawsuit alleges that after repeated complaints, no action was taken to protect her first grade daughter from being bullied. The suit also names two other students who are alleged to have bullied the girl at Fairmont Elementary School.
The plaintiff's claim that the two girls accused of bullying inflicted verbal, emotional and physical abuse. They would call her names and verbally harassed her on a daily basis. One incident took place in the bathroom when one of the bullies punched the girl and she fell and hit her head on the sink. Another incident took place at recess one afternoon when a brick was reportedly thrown near the plaintiffs' head.
The School district could not be reached for comment but has an anti-bullying policy in place which can be read on their website. The policy states that no bullying of any kind is acceptable. The lawsuit states that because the school district failed to provide safety and protect the student the plaintiffs are seeking damages in excess of $50,000.
