Kansas Catholic School Sued Over Child Neglect Report
Saturday's Kansas City Star reported on a lawsuit filed in Johnson County, Kansas state court last month against the Catholic Archdiocese of Kansas City, Sacred Heart Catholic Church and its school principal. Plaintiff Melissa Schroeder claims that she told the school her 10-year old daughter was suffering significant health problems from ongoing bullying. Instead of resolving the problem, the suit alleges that school officials filed a false report with the state child welfare agency claiming abuse and neglect, reporting that the child's mother falsified the child's medical documents and had requested an exorcism for her daughter.
