Sexual Assault Lawsuit Filed Against School District And Bus Company

There has been a lawsuit filed against Indian Prairie School District 204 and the First Student bus company with regard to alleged “inappropriate touching” and fondling of a girl by a male middle school student.  The lawsuit is asking for $3 million from the defendants, as well as the $20,000 from the boy’s parents.

An excerpt from the Naperville Patch article of August 22, 2016, titled “Parents Claim Naperville Daughter was Sexually Assaulted on School Bus:  Report“:

The lawsuit, filed by the girl’s parents, says the girl was fondled on the bus May 18, 2015, while on her way to an after-school activity. The girl reportedly told the boy to stop, but he then spit on her and “used his backpack to hit her in the head several times,” according to the report.

The lawsuit claims the district violated the federal Title IX law “because the district failed to properly investigate the mother’s report, as well as 12 other alleged sexual harassment reports from other students,” according to the report. The district is also accused of failing to protect the girl.

According to this article as well as the Daily Herald article of August 19, 2016, titled “Lawsuit says Dist. 204 failed to protect student from sexual assaults,” the girl’s mother had previously alerted the school of the boy’s inappropriate touching of the girl.  An excerpt from the Daily Herald article:

Just two months earlier, according to an email attached to the lawsuit, the girl’s mother contacted district officials and said her daughter was complaining about the boy touching her private areas.

“This is an inappropriate behavior and it has to stop,” the mother wrote.
