FOUNTAIN, Colo. (The Gazette) - The family of a Carson Middle School student is threatening to sue Fountain-Fort Carson School District 8 for injuries they say resulted from their son being beat up after the teacher stepped out of the classroom.

A notice of intent to file a lawsuit submitted to the El Paso County Attorney’s Office states that the teen was hurt on Aug. 24, about a week and a half after school resumed in the fall.

A letter sent by The Gold Law Firm of Greenwood Village claims the student was “violently assaulted” by another student, and as a result, “endured physical pain and severe emotional distress.”

The family plans to ask for a jury trial and more than $387,000 in economic and non-economic damages, the letter said.
