Javerbaum Wurgaft Attorneys, advocating for a student with disabilities, have filed a lawsuit against the Lyndhurst School District and the Lyndhurst Board of Education over allegations of bullying towards a student diagnosed with autism.
The case has recently been highlighted in an article published on NJ.com.
The article reports a lawsuit against the Lyndhurst School District and the Lyndhurst Board of Education for alleged failure to address bullying of a student with autism, leading to claimed violations of New Jersey’s anti-discrimination laws and the child’s civil rights. The student was coerced by his classmates to utter racist slurs and make inappropriate advances toward girls.
“Javerbaum Wurgaft stands firm against school bullying, and we are unwavering in our commitment to protect the rights of all students and demand accountability from educational institutions for their conduct,” said Heidi R. Weintraub, a Partner at Javerbaum Wurgaft. Associate Zachary M. Green is also actively working on the case.
