BATON ROUGE – The parents of a Baton Rouge middle school student are suing the school for damages after a male student allegedly beat their daughter until she was unconscious during school hours.

Kamika Williams and Kedric Lee, individually and on behalf of their minor daughter, filed a lawsuit against the East Baton Rouge Parish School Board, Capital Middle School, the parents of the child accused of assault and all insurers in the 19th Judicial District Court.

Williams and Lee claim that their daughter was beaten by another student in the hallway of Capital Middle School wherein she sustained injuries to her head, lip, face and a traumatic brain injury.

The defendants are accused of failing to protect third persons from the alleged aggressor's violent actions, failing to prevent the incident, failing to provide adequate supervision and all other acts of negligence particularly within the knowledge of defendants.

The plaintiffs are seeking recompense for their daughter's severe lip, head, face, and jaw injuries, joint dysfunction, loss of consciousness, severe emotional injury, mental injury and permanent brain injury. Williams and Lee have claims of significant medical expenses that went toward the diagnosis and treatment of their daughter’s injuries.

Sean D. Fagan of Baton Rouge-based Locke Meredith, Sean Fagan & Corey Oregon will represent the plaintiff.

This case has been assigned to Section 22 Judge Timothy E. Kelley.

Case no. 2013-619471.
