(KMOV.com) -- A mother is suing Belleville Public School District 118, says the district’s failure to enforce its own policy led to her child getting beaten by a bully.

According the suit, Belleville West Junior High failed to have an aide on the school bus, despite it being bus policy.

The suit alleges a boy teased the woman’s daughter about her weight, and when she asked him to stop, he punched her in the face-breaking her nose.

The suit asks for $150,000 plus court costs.

The school district says it will not comment on pending litigation.
