Attorney Says KIS Student Victim of False Accusations, Defamation
September 26, 2007 - An Indianapolis attorney is looking to recover damages from the Charles A. Beard Memorial School Corporation on behalf of a local intermediate school student.
The Banner learned Tuesday that CAB received a Notice of Tort Claim - generally a precursor to the filing of litigation against public entities in Indiana - from attorney William Ivers in late June. The copy of the notice that CAB provided to The Banner nearly five weeks after it was first requested is severely censored, so very little information is known about the student or the circumstances involved.
According to portions of the notice that have not been redacted - or blacked out - the student at issue, a female who either attends or did attend Knightstown Intermediate School, was falsely accused of something and was the subject of "defamatory accusations and statements … made by school personnel" on or about February 27. The notice goes on to say that the defamatory statements and accusations "were allowed to circulate and be repeated by others throughout the school."
Iverson says in the notice that the student's rights under state and federal constitutions were violated, as were rights guaranteed by Indiana's statutory and common law.
The Banner's efforts to contact Iverson Tuesday afternoon were not successful.
