Parents File Wrongful Death Suit In Cyber Bulling Of Daughter

The parents of a 12 year old middle school student who killed herself after relentless cyber bullying by schoolmates have filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the Rockaway Board of Education and various school administrators. Mallory Grossman was a student at Copeland Middle School in Rockaway when she committed suicide on June 14, 2017 after she was taunted, texted malicious messages, and even asked, “when are you going to kill yourself.” Her parents made numerous complaints to the school to stop this activity and protect their daughter, but the school took no steps to stop the cyber bullying. The complaint was filed on June 19, 2018 detailing the nature and extent of the repeated cyber bullying that was suffered by the child.
