CHICAGO — A minor and his guardian are suing a physical education teacher for Schaumburg Consolidated School District 54, alleging negligence, liability and insufficient measures taken to prevent injuries.

Angelica Rooney, morther of the minor child, filed a complaint on July 25 in the Cook County Circuit Court, alleging that the teacher failed to adequately supervise Rooney's child during class.

According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that on Feb. 8, the child sustained physical injuries including a fracture of his arm and wrist. The plaintiff holds the teacher, as agent of Schaumburg Consolidated School District 54, responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to properly supervise the child and the other students while working on floor routines.

The plaintiffs seek judgment against the defendant in an amount less than $50,000 plus court costs and any further relief the court grants. They are represented by Stephen L. Hoffman of Law Office of Stephen L. Hoffman LLC in Chicago.
