The lawsuit was filed against Anderson, school principal Beth Brogan, the Red Wing Public Schools and "John and Jane Does" representing the school administration. It includes six charges: hostile environment, race discrimination, violation of the Minnesota Human Rights Act, aiding and abetting violation of the Minnesota Human Rights Act and negligence.
"Teenagers do not always understand the profound impact that bigotry and bullying has on its victims," the lawsuit began. "But adults should."
"We're hoping to hold the school district accountable and hoping that other schools will take notice that they have a duty to provide an educational atmosphere free from racial discrimination," Williams said.
The lawsuit is requesting an amount greater than $75,000 for damages and litigation expenses. Williams said it could take up to a year for a Pruitt to get a court date.
