Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Jennifer C. Craig, Jackson, Tennessee, for the appellant, Union City School District.

Attorneys 2:

W. Lewis Jenkins, Jr. and Dean P. Dedmon, Dyersburg, Tennessee, for the appellees, Rachel Ballog-Riffe, and Jeffrey Riffe.

Judge(s): ARMSTRONG

This is a negligence case involving the alleged sexual assault of a 13-year-old special education student by another 13-year-old special education student in a school bathroom. The trial court determined that the Appellant school district was not entitled to summary judgment as a matter of law because there was a question of fact as to whether the incident was foreseeable. We conclude that there is no dispute of material fact and that summary judgment in favor of the school district should be granted. Reversed and remanded.
