Male students and their parents approached DRZ to help them get a school district to respond to repeated attacks. A larger student was repeatedly sexually assaulting other male students in the locker room and hallways. The school district claimed to be unaware, despite warnings from other students about the perpetrator. DRZ filed suit against the school district for violation of the students’ constitutional rights and infliction of emotional distress. The school district quickly agreed to compensate the students to settle the lawsuit.
