As kids, we’re taught not to throw objects at others … that includes staplers.
Davonte Shaffer, a 13-year-old diagnosed with autism, was allegedly hit by a stapler thrown by a teacher’s aide at Johnson James Weldon Elementary School, according to a lawsuit filed against the Chicago Board of Education in Cook County Circuit Court on Monday, the Sun Times reports.
The Nov. 26, 2008 incident allegedly came at the end of verbal berating and psychological abuse happening inside the classroom, Davonte's father, Robert Shaffer, claims in the lawsuit.
Schaffer's father is asking for at least $50,000 for negligence, willful and wanton conduct and intentional tort.
