Bryan J. Swerling was recently featured on silive.com. In this article, Mr. Swerling’s client was injured in a high school cafeteria brawl which led to a head injury. The victim’s mother sued the city and Department of Education because of an alleged failed “proper and adequate” supervision that led to a dangerous situation to develop.
