Mom Files ‘Bully’ Lawsuit
A mother whose daughter attempted suicide after she was constantly bullied by classmates last week filed a lawsuit charging the city failed to take action against the offenders.
The 16-year-old student at Robert F.Wagner Jr. Secondary School for Arts & Technology in Long Island City, swallowed a handful of pills in a desperate suicide attempt after she was severely beaten by bullying classmates, the lawsuit charges.
The mother, Jennifer Jimenez, claims her cries for help to get the bullies out of her daughter’s class fell on deaf ears by school and city officials.
Attorneys at the city Corporation Counsel refused comment on the ongoing litigation.
