Huffing lawsuit needs to be modified
The parent of a Westmoor elementary student who is suing the district for the long term after-effects of a February, 2011 huffing incident at an after-school program has until today to modify her complaint.
The Star Herald says the lawsuit claims the parent's two children in the after-school program suffered emotional, physical, and mental issues after they inhaled intoxicating fumes from cleaning products and other sources. 18 year old Jessica McDaniel of Gering was convicted of assisting the children she was supervising in inhaling the substances and was sentenced to a year in jail.
The parent is asking for close to $4,500 in medical expenses and other damages from the school district, who she says was negligent in not supervising McDaniel and putting her children in danger.
The parent has been asked by the court to file an "actionable claim" by today following a hearing last week.
