Parents Sue Third Grade Bully: ‘Weekly Verbal And Physical Attacks’ Cause Parents To File Lawsuit

The parents of a bullied child have decided to sue the third grade bully who is causing problems at school. According to FOX News, Deveri and Matthew Del Core have filed a lawsuit against a child, who has allegedly caused “weekly verbal and physical attacks” on their son, Joaquin, at the Robert Frost Elementary in Mount Prospect, Illinois. Mr. and Mrs. Del Core are seeking $50,000 in emotional damages from their son’s alleged bully, the bully’s parents, the school district, and the school’s principal.

The boy’s mother explained:

“There was everything from choking my son and threatening to kill him, said he was going to go home and get a knife and come back and kill him. My son would wake up at night screaming and crying, terrified, and did not want to go to school.”

The parents’ choice to sue the third grade bully and their son’s school has left them in a tight spot. Deveri Del Core says that she was fired from her job at Robert Frost Elementary School just three hours after the paperwork was filed. Despite the Del Cores claims that nothing has been done to prevent the bullying (which sounds extremely severe), the school’s district superintendent has a different take. Kate Hyland said that “bullying prevention” is taken “very seriously.” So, does this mean that the school was unaware of what was going on between Joaquin and the child who was supposedly bullying him?

According to Yahoo! News, the school was notified about the situation and police have been involved. Investigators have confirmed that the alleged bully — who is listed with the initials C.A. in the legal paperwork — has “anger issues,” but that’s as far as things went, apparently. Matthew Del Core said that he and his wife were told that the school would “handle it,” but the bully was right back to his old tricks within a week.

The parents who decided to sue the third grade bully are being represented by attorney Joel Handler. He said:

“[The bully] has committed multiple assaults, multiple batteries, on my client. Since the school’s not going to address it, and the parent presumably are not going to address it, then we are going to have to address it.”

Bullies have been in the news a couple of times this month alone. As previously reported by The Inquisitr, a teen who was bullied by the same kid for months recently snapped and stabbed his tormentor to death.
