ELKHART, Ind. — REAL News Michiana is working to get more details about a lawsuit regarding the sexual assault of a child on an Elkhart Community Schools’ school bus. Late last month, the parents of an elementary school girl filed a lawsuit against Elkhart Community Schools and multiple employees after their 12-year-old daughter was allegedly sexually assaulted on a school bus. The parents have filed the lawsuit against the school district, the bus driver and the principal of Mary Daly Elementary School, Josh Nice.
According to the lawsuit, the sexual assault occurred on Halloween in 2019. The assaults were committed by another student.
The parents allege the school was aware of the assaults and did nothing to stop them from happening. In fact, the lawsuit alleges the school did nothing to prevent the child from being in contact with her alleged abuser in the future.
You can read the entire complaint below.
A similar lawsuit was filed against the school district and the same principal for sexual assaults allegedly committed against another student in 2017. That involved a 6-year-old child who was allegedly sexually assaulted on the playground and inside of Mary Daly Elementary School. The school district settled that case for $70,000 last year.
REAL News Michiana reached out to the attorney for the family involved in the most recent case. He did not provide a comment, stating he does not typically discuss cases with the media until they are completed.
RNM also reached out to Elkhart Community Schools attorney Douglas Thorne. As of publication, we have not received a response.
