Thank you very much for your patience.

This to me sounds like a classic case of negligence if the school knew of the bulling and failed to do anything about it even though they are responsible to maintain the safety of the children. Negligence simply means that there was a duty that the other party owed and they breached that duty in some way. What is most important is that it is proven that the defendant breached their duty of care because that is what mostly determines whether there is a cause of action. Basically, the question is, “Did the defendant’s actions fall below the standard of care for a reasonable person in a similar situation?” If the answer to that question is yes, then there is negligence and you are entitled to damages. Damages can be difficult to calculate, but if you click here you can use a calculator help you understand.

You may also file a complaint with your state board of education as well on the grounds that perhaps your daughter is being targeted as a result of the color of her skin.

I'm verry sorry to hear what happened.

What other questions did you have for me today that I can help you out with:-)?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
