City Faces Suit Over Girl Left on Bus

An attorney representing the family of a 5-year-old special needs kindergarten girl left unattended on a parked Gloucester school bus for two hours in sub-freezing temperatures in January has filed a notice of a pending lawsuit seeking $1 million over the school district’s handling of the incident.

Attorney Joseph Orlando sent the notice on Wednesday to Mayor Sefatia Romeo Theken and Superintendent Richard Safier, citing his intention to file claims on behalf of the girl, identified only as Jane Doe for “personal injuries” and other hardships, and for her mother, named as Catherine Doe, noting that school officials did not properly notify the family as the Jan. 15 incident played out.
