BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A student who allegedly sustained critical injuries in an assault at Boca Raton’s Omni Middle School is now suing the school district.

Shari Solomon is the mother of the student who sustained critical injuries during the 2017 incident. She is suing the School Board of Palm Beach County, claiming that the school district was well aware of supervisory issues at the school and did not take appropriate action to prevent her child from being victimized. The suit also claims the offending student was never disciplined, despite assurances to the contrary from officials at the school.

BocaNewsNow.com has reported on several Omni Middle School violence issues over the past several years, including our exclusive reporting of a child with Autism being arrested by school police after he was assaulted on campus.

According to the suit, the victim “suffered bodily injury and resulting pain and suffering, disability, disfigurement, scarring, mental anguish, loss of capacity for the enjoyment of life, expense of hospitalization, medical and nursing care and treatment and aggravation of a previously existing condition. The losses are either permanent or continuing and the Plaintiff (child) will suffer the losses in the future.”

The suit seeks in excess of $30,000 — the statutory minimum for filing in Palm Beach County Circuit Court.

We are publishing the complete lawsuit, below. There was no immediate response filed by the School District of Palm Beach County.
