Alabama injury attorney Morris Lilienthal has just filed a negligence and wantonness lawsuit in Madison County, Alabama Circuit Court arising out of an alleged child abuse incident. Our firm represents a mother and her 7 year-old son who was abused while attending a summer day camp in Huntsville. The complaint alleges Joseph A. Lee, a 61 year-old professor at Alabama A&M University as the director of the summer camp, was charged with a duty to supervise, watch, and care for the children at the camp. The complaint further alleges that Lee rudely, inappropriately and wrongfully came in contact with a 7 year-old camper causing the child to suffer physical and emotional injuries. The personal injury lawsuit also sets forth claims against Lee’s alleged employer and the sponsor of the day camp Alabama A&M University Community Development Corporation. The lawsuit seeks an unspecified amount of damages. Following this incident, Lee was arrested and charged with felony child abuse. As Huntsville personal injury attorneys, we are deeply saddened anytime someone takes advantage of a child; however, the level playing field of our civil justice system gives us great hope that we can right this terrible wrong.
