  • I'm not a lawyer but wanted to sue the school system in my state a while back for harrassment. I was told that most states make schools sue proof. But, if your son was molested, file a criminal charge. Even if the molester is another child, they will prosecute.

  • It's going to be hard, but it can be done. make sure you get a good lawyer and a children's advocate on your side.

  • I'm a teacher - and I say go for it. It is difficult - but it can be done with the proper lawyer. Was your child molested by another child or an adult? Either way - file criminal charges!!!! If it was another child - someone should have been supervising!!!! That's just neglect on the school part. My thoughts are with you.
