A student and his mother are suing the Tuscon Unified School District (TUSD), alleging that its negligence allowed the boy to be attacked and injured by a classmate.
10-year-old Cody Barber was playing during P.E. class when he was knocked to the ground and kicked by another student, whose identity was not released. Cody suffered a severely lacerated spleen and was hospitalized for 6 days. According to the lawsuit, the school district was negligent because it allowed the attacker, a boy with a history of behavioral problems, to participate in activities that he was not supposed to.
No criminal charges have been filed against Cody’s attacker.
