The teen who had her arm broken by a school resource officer last fall is now suing the Akron Police Department.
Eddie Sipplen, the attorney for the girl's mother filed suit Tuesday afternoon.
Sipplen says he filed the suit after he says he got "no response" from the city in terms of holding the officer accountable for his role in the incident.
"What the officer did was just wrong," Sipplen said.
"Rather than doing what's right, they are doing what I would feel is an effort to cover themselves and limit their liability."
Back in October of last year, the teen was restrained by an officer at Jennings CLC, because she was yelling and tearing papers off the walls. The incident came just days after the girl was transferred there.
F.O.P Lodge 7 President Paul Hlynsky says Officer Jon Morgan acted appropriately.
"As a union we stand behind the actions of the officer," Hlynsky said.
"As an officer, you are supposed to maintain control, if you tell someone to do something and they don't do it, you can't just stand around and say 'Hey never mind I didn't mean it.' "
The teen had some discipline issues at other Akron Public Schools and has attended three different schools this year.
Sipplen says its not about the actions of his client and her behavioral history, it's about the the actions of the resource officer at Jennings CLC.
"I't's not about her actions, he's the professional, he's the person who should be trained on how to deal with situations like this," he said.
AkronNewsNow confirmed Morgan was placed on leave shortly after the incident, but is now back at Jennings.
Hlynsky said the matter is still under investigation, but is confident that the court will make what he feels is the right decision.
