$21M SUIT IN SCHOOL SEX ABUSE
A Brooklyn mom has filed a $21 million lawsuit against the Department of Education, charging that a bully at her son's new school forced him to perform oral sex on him in a stairwell. The woman claims that the boy's teacher at the Brooklyn School for Career Development ignored her son's complaints about the bully and that administrators failed to provide adequate security in the stairwell. This suit marks the second time that the woman has resorted to the courts to seek justice for her son in a sexual attack at school. The boy, who is now 15 and has an IQ of 70, was stripped naked in his special-education elementary-school class when he was 10, his mother charged in a lawsuit that she's set to settle for $50,000.
