Two sets of parents of Hamilton County School students have filed lawsuits against the county schools, alleging that school officials failed to stop bullying.
Doug and Aimee Zukowski said their child was bullied at the Center for Creative Arts by a group called "the Ghetto Girls."
It also says the student was the victim of sexual harassment.
The suit says school officials were aware of the bullying, but did nothing to stop it.
In a second suit, Stan and Melissa Nixon said school officials did not act when their son was allegedly bullied by members of the Signal Mountain Middle School football team.
They said in an incident last Sept. 26 at a team meal, students became unruly and their son's head was slammed into a concrete block wall. Their son was also kicked, the suit says.
The Zukowski suit asks $500,000 in damages, while the Nixon complaint seeks $1 million.
The lawsuits were filed in Hamilton County Circuit Court by attorneys Gary Massey and Danny Ellis.
