David Edward Boyle's answer Your daughter's case for battery will be in juvenile court where she likely only faces probation even if she is convicted. A more pressing outcome is that she will likely be suspended from school for 10 days and then expelled under the school's zero tolerance program. I would strongly encourage you to hire a lawyer to represent her.
Homer P Jordan IV's answer Have you asked the school why they are withholding the transcripts? Start there to see what the problem is. Maybe he owes fines or needs to do something on that end before they release them. If they don't respond, try contacting the school district's main office to see if you can get assistance. Homer P.

P. Justin Thrailkill's answer This has more to do with the local school system than your court order. If the papers say you are the primary custodian, that is what they are going to go by. Notwithstanding this, if you lie and use his address, I think that if he were to modify it that this would give him some ammunition to say that you agree that your child would be better off living with him, in the school district where he resides.
Peter N. Munsing's answer You would have to show they knew the other kid had lice. But yes, you could make a claim against them. However they may not be happy to have your youth in that daycare, so make alternate daycare plans. Contact a member of the Ga.Trial Lawyers Assn for your county--they give free consults.
David Edward Boyle's answer You can file a law suit alleging slander. You will have to prove the teacher made an untrue statement and you suffered damages as a result. If you are in fact under investigation, that fact is true.
William Head's answer The school has the right to protect other students and teachers. Unless there is a laboratory test that can confirm he was inoculated, to get them to accept it, then you have no right to force this issue.
Peter N. Munsing's answer Contact a member of the Ga. Trial Lawyers Association that handles workers compensation. They give free consults. You can also check with your union. Injuries from a fight are covered. Problem with diabetes is last time I asked an expert (MD/Phd in Physiology) he said that anecdotally it's reported but no one has done a serious study on it so it is something that cannot be testified to under the standards governing expert opinions. But get the free consult.
Kevin Shields' answer While you were at a school, this is more of a criminal law question and are likely being charged under your state's criminal code. Once your case goes to court, you can present whatever evidence you have during a trial. It may be helpful to contact a local criminal lawyer about your individual facts.
Mitchell Feldman's answer These facts alone do not provide enough information for a lawyer to provide you direct legal advice. Certainly you should seek out the assistance of the school board, its counsel and HR department. In addition, then, you should seek legal advice and set up a consultation with an attorney, but I suggest you do not make direct contact with this parent as that may make things more adversarial and be contrary to the school policies and procedures, which you need to follow. I'm sure your school...
David Alan Wolf's answer I am sorry to read about the rest of the details. Cases like this are quite challenging especially if the Defendant is a public school system. The four element of a case or claim are 1. Duty; 2. Breach of Duty; 3. Causation; and 4. Damages. All four elements must be linked together and established by the evidence. Furthermore, the foreseeability and preventability of an incident also come into play. You need to sit down with the attorney to discuss the planned course of action. If the...
