Tribal school, others sued after parade float injures girl

 


PIERRE | The mother of a girl who was injured after falling off a parade float during homecoming has filed a federal lawsuit against her daughter's tribal school, a police department and other agencies.

Mission resident Tamaleon Wilcox is requesting a federal jury trial after a claim for $3 million was denied by the U.S. Department of Interior.

The lawsuit filed this week in federal court in Pierre claims the junior high school student broke a leg bone and suffered other injuries when she fell off the float during the St. Francis Indian School 2013 homecoming parade. The float was on top of a flatbed trailer being pulled by a Rosebud Police Department vehicle driven by an officer.

Court records show the school and police department have been notified of the lawsuit.
