CPS' Statement Regarding Pending Litigation

August 7, 2017

Cincinnati (OH) – Cincinnati Public Schools is aware that a lawsuit is being filed in federal court pertaining to the tragic death of Gabriel Taye and allegations that he was a victim of bullying on Cincinnati Public Schools’ property.

As we have stated previously pertaining to Gabriel’s passing, “Our hearts are broken by the loss of this child, and our thoughts are with his parents and extended family. He was an outstanding young man, and this is a great loss for his family and our school community.”

A copy of the complete statement previously released on May 12, 2017, is available on the district’s website.

Now that litigation has been initiated, we offer no further comments regarding this matter at this time.
