The family of a girl attacked on a school bus has sued the Yakima School District, claiming the bus driver failed to intervene and protect the child.
In a surveillance video dated Nov. 9, 2011, the attacker is seen moving toward the bus doors even while the bus is still moving.
Then after the bus stopped, children started to exit. But as the victim moved toward the door, she was pushed back onto the bus by the attacker.
“You hear this loud, excuse my language, but this girl says 'b--ches don't get off,’” said Vito de la Cruz, the girl’s attorney.
The girl, who is going by the initials C.L.G. in this lawsuit, then handed her cellphone to the bus driver for safekeeping as she began to defend herself. De la Cruz said the attacker was at one point the victim’s friend.
