PITTSBURGH — A former Brashear High School student who was beaten and stomped by a classmate is suing Pittsburgh Public Schools.

According to the lawsuit, school officials knew of at least three other attacks but failed to protect him.

In the lawsuit, Williams said that violated his civil rights.

In March 2022, Quincey Garland was arrested and charged with aggravated assault. It’s unclear if prosecutors followed through with the charges.

According to the lawsuit, incidents between Williams and Garland were documented as far back as September 2021.

Channel 11 reached out to Pittsburgh Public Schools for a comment, but we have not heard back.
