Suit: School officials didn't do enough to stop harassmentJune 12, 2019
By The Associated Press
LEBANON — A federal lawsuit says central Indiana school officials didn't do enough to stop a girl from being harassed after nude photos and sexually explicit videos of her were shared by fellow students.
The Indianapolis Star reports the girl, now 18, is suing the Lebanon Community School Corporation alleging Title IX and Fourteenth Amendment violations.
The district says it recently learned of the lawsuit and school officials typically don't comment on pending litigation.
The lawsuit says the girl, identified in court documents as "Jane Doe," was 12 in 2014 and a middle school student when she was coerced into sending a boy nude photos. The case was handled via the juvenile justice system. The lawsuit says videos were shared in 2016, when the girl was in high school.
