The Washington Times Daily - - NATION -

CINCIN­NATI | A fed­eral law­suit says a “treach­er­ous school en­vi­ron­ment” that al­lowed and cov­ered up bul­ly­ing led to the sui­cide of an 8-year-old Cincin­nati boy.

The wrong­ful death suit filed Mon­day by the par­ents of Gabriel Taye names of­fi­cials at his ele­men­tary

school and at the Cincin­nati Pub­lic Schools dis­trict as de­fen­dants.

At­tor­neys have said his mother didn’t know her son was bul­lied un­til the lawyers saw a Cincin­nati po­lice de­tec­tive’s email de­scrib­ing the scene out­side a boys’ bath­room where at­tor­neys say Gabriel was knocked un­con­scious. He hanged him­self at home two days later on Jan. 26.
