$21 Million Lawsuit by Parents Against School District Arising from Razor Attack on Aspiring Model Jazmin Drain

Below is the federal court complaint recently filed by the parents of aspiring model Jazmin Drain against the Freeport Union Free School District and others, arising from a razor attack by a fellow student. Plaintiffs bring their claims under 42 USC 1983.
