Recently I handled a case in which a very young child had been sexually molested by an older student on numerous occasions while riding home on a school bus. We brought a lawsuit against the boy who performed the sexual acts as well as against the school which owned the bus. We claimed that since the children were emotionally disturbed children, the bus should have had a monitor on it at all times.
Another theory which we had was against the bus driver for failing to be alert. How could there have been numerous incidents without the bus driver knowing about them unless he was not paying attention? We settled the case for hundreds of thousands of dollars. This is just one example of the lack of supervision that may result in a good case against the school for lack of supervision.
