Mom sues third-grader and parents for alleged bullying
A suburban mother has filed a lawsuit claiming an elementary-school student bullied and beat up her son, a third-grader at the same Mount Prospect school.
In the lawsuit, which also identifies the boy as a plaintiff, Deveri Del Core, claims there was “continuous” bullying of her son throughout the 2013-14 school year. The lawsuit filed in Cook County Circuit Court Tuesday said the boy was hit, punched, choked, elbowed, kicked, pushed, tripped and spat on on a weekly basis by another student.
Both were third-grade students at Robert Frost Elementary School in Mount Prospect, although the two boys were in different classes.
The lawsuit also names the Wheeling-based Community Consolidated School District 21, Frost Elementary School Principal Jeffrey Brusso, and the alleged bully’s parents.
