Salgado V. Bay Shore UFSD

CFO Legal > Salgado V. Bay Shore UFSD

Brief Description of Case:

This is an action in which plaintiff sought recovery for personal injuries allegedly sustained when she was assaulted by another student, alleging that the school was negligent in its supervision of its students.

Court or Jury’s Decision and Reasoning:

The court granted the District summary judgment and dismissed plaintiff’s complaint, as: (1) the District was not on notice of a need to provide greater supervision; and (2) the altercation occurred in so short a span of time that any alleged negligent supervision could not be deemed a proximate cause of plaintiff’s injuries.
