An eighth-grade student with disabilities was sexually assaulted in an empty classroom at Oak Hill School five years ago, according to a lawsuit filed in Tuscaloosa County Circuit Court last week.
The suit filed by the girl’s mother claims that a 14-year-old male student assaulted the then-14-year-old girl in 2007.
The complaint names the school’s former principal, two teachers and a teacher’s aide as defendants. Tuscaloosa City Schools is not named because the system receives state funding and is immune from lawsuits in all but a few circumstances.
