DRZ represented a mother and her daughter after the student was sexually assaulted in a school bathroom. School employees and security failed to adequately monitor school grounds and even failed to take immediate action when noticing signs that the assault was occurring. The school waited a lengthy time before contacting the student’s mother and even suspended the student. Ultimately the school reached a confidential settlement with the student.
