The plaintiffs in the case, Brandon’s parents, were suing based on the school failing to handle harassment at the school. More claims of wrongful death because of negligence and discrimination against Brandon’s disabilities were a part of the case, as well as suing parents for harassment and emotional distress. The Myers had claimed that the staff members were fostering a system where bullying was being able to thrive in the school and have no consequence, which still seemed to be the case when the life threatening notes were given to the school and no direct action was being taken for the victim. This also includes how the district officials, along with the employees, had kept the evidence and destroyed it to essentially keep the school protected.
