Student Receives $20,000 For Being Victim Of Bullying

Filed under Personal Injury

The Fort Wayne-South Bend Roman Catholic Diocese of Indiana, and the parents of two students from Most Precious Blood Catholic School, have agreed to pay nearly $20,000 to the family of another student that was victim of repeated bullying at the school run by the Catholic Diocese. According to the lawsuit filed by the parents of the student that was bullied, their son, who suffers from cerebral palsy and is required to wear leg braces, was subjected to near daily abuse by other students.

The lawsuit alleges the boy was pushed down a flight of stairs at least 25 times by other students and on several occasions, punched, jumped on and taunted with slurs regarding sexual orientation. When the parents of the student complained to school officials, they failed to take appropriate or timely action.

Commenting on this case, Ruth Cohen of Paul Padda Law, PLLC noted that school officials who turn a blind eye to bullying do so “at their own peril.” “No child deserves to be bullied at school and adults who have a responsiblity to act had better do so” according to Cohen or risk the possibility of a lawsuit. “With the greater awareness developing in society regarding the harm resulting from bullying, courts and juries are becoming more sensitive to this form of tortious conduct” Cohen stated.
