Q: Can I sue my child's school for failing to secure his personal data?
A: I do not practice in this area. But I noticed that no one picked up your question for almost a month. Please keep in mind that if the matter involves a public school, the City of New York, or city agency, notice of claim issues could be involved, which can be in the order of days. Consulting an attorney without delay would at the very least enable you to learn the applicable notice of claim requirements and statutes of limitations within which you would need to act to preserve your legal rights and/or your child’s legal rights.
