The law firm of  Cerri, Boskovich & Allard has launched legal action against Gilroy Unified School District, alleging negligent supervision of students that has resulted in unprovoked attacks being shared on social media platforms.

Representing a former student known as Jane Doe, the firm claims in the lawsuit that school officials at Solorsano Middle School were alerted twice by Doe’s parents regarding imminent physical threats to their daughter. Despite these warnings, an assault, later circulated on Snapchat and Instagram, occurred in January 2023. The video reveals an attacker, accompanied by friends who teased the victim, approaching from behind, pulling her hair, and dragging her to the ground before kicking and beating her. No school official is visible in the video at any point during this assault. The victim subsequently required hospital treatment for a concussion.

The victim’s parents, no longer trusting the school’s ability to safeguard their daughter, decided to enroll her in a private institution, incurring personal costs.
