Courthouse News Service: CHICAGO (CN) - Parents of a Wisconsin child who drowned during a field trip cannot seek damages under federal law from the child's school district, the 7th Circuit ruled.
In June 2010, seventh-grade students at Roosevelt Middle School took a trip to Mauthe Lake on the last day of the school year.
The trip was voluntary and required parents to sign permission slips authorizing their children to "play in the water." Assistant Principal Maribeth Gosz planned the trip, with approval from Principal Linda Estes.
