Tennessee Supreme Court Holds School Districts Accountable
Under a recent Tennessee Supreme Court decision, school districts are 100 percent liable for physical or emotional injuries that occur as a result of bullying, fights, falls and other causes that arise from negligence on the school's part.
The ruling stems from a case in which a child who suffered from Asperger syndrome was injured by another student after the teacher left the classroom. The child was struck in the eye by a textbook, causing him to go blind in that eye. The court ruled that the incident was foreseeable because the child's mother and grandmother had complained to the school district about bullying more than 90 times.
When a school is aware of bullying incidents and does not take steps to protect students, they may be 100 percent liable for a child's physical and emotional damages.
