Student sues Paterson school district after falling in gym


A Harp Academy student has filed a lawsuit against the school district after slipping and falling in gym class.

Shackira Bailey filed the lawsuit late last month. She involved in a gym class on Sept. 21, 2016 when she fell, according to the lawsuit. She blames the school for acting “carelessly, recklessly and negligently in placing hoops on the floor and requiring” her “to jump through them while alternating feet.”

Bailey slipped and fell over the hoops, according to the lawsuit, sustaining “severe and permanent injuries, enduring great pain and suffering.” She had to spend unspecified amounts on medical attention and couldn’t take part in normal activities.

Bailey is seeking an unspecified amount in monetary damages.

    baseless lawsuit, gym class is gym class and physical exercise is expected…at best she can get med bills covered under district's insurance
