Lawsuit Filed Against Union City, School System

April 24th, 2013 - By Charles Choate

lawsuitThe City of Union City, and the Union City School System, have been named in a $5 million dollar lawsuit filed this week.

The lawsuit, filed in Obion County Circuit Court, claims a student at Union City Middle School was “sexually victimized by another student” in the bathroom from late April of 2012 to May of 2012.

The lawsuit said the victim and perpetrator were both special needs students, who failed to receive adequate supervision in the school bathrooms, which allowed the assaults to occur.

The suit also claimed the victim attempted to inform the principal and other school officials of the sexual attacks, but was “rebuffed” by those officials on each occasion.

The suit was filed by the parents of the victim, and filed in court by Dyersburg attorney Dean Dedmon.
