Lawsuit blaming schools for bullying, suicide can proceed

CINCINNATI (AP) — A wrongful death lawsuit accusing an Ohio school district of denying and covering up bullying of an 8-year-old boy who killed himself will be allowed to proceed.

A federal judge on Monday denied Cincinnati Public Schools' request to dismiss the lawsuit filed by Gabriel Taye's parents who say he killed himself after being bullied at school.
