MUNICIPAL LAW: Teachers held not negligent for field day injury

MUNICIPAL LAW: Teachers Held Not Negligent For Field Day Injury

The trial court concludes that the P.E. and homeroom teachers of a fourth grader hurt during a field day activity were not negligent.  The minor plaintiff was injured during a “big clothes” relay race, when another student tugged on the clothes causing the minor plaintiff to fall to the hardwood floor and sustain a knee injury.  The parents allegedly spent over $10,000 in medical care.  The evidence was that the teachers organized, planned, instructed and supervised the students in a reasonable fashion.

Council v. Lombardi, (August 26, 2014)
