New Civil Case

On behalf of four minor children, Jamie Bjornson, Jennifer Sapier and Peter J. Wyborney filed a complaint for damages against Wilbur Elementary School and the Wilbur School District alleging that school personnel, although informed about alleged harassment against them by a classmate, “completely and utterly failed” to protect the targeted students and take disciplinary action against the student who ultimately was expelled after allegedly threatening to bring a gun to school and kill students. Other allegations concern physical assaults, including attacks using scissors, and written death threats. The petitioners seek compensation for medical and other costs associated with the development of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), mental anguish and emotional distress.
