LACEY, NJ – A second lawsuit has been filed by another parent on behalf of their African-American child alleging racist comments and harassment that were not properly addressed by school officials, according to court documents.
The lawsuit was filed against the Lacey Township School District in April, 2020 and the litigation is ongoing. The student who allegedly suffered the harassment was only identified by their initials in public court documents. The alleged harassment took place during the 2018-2019 school year.
The allegations contained in the newly filed lawsuit largely mirror what was alleged in another case filed against the district last year by a different family who alleged their child was harassed due to their race.
