ABSTRACT
The article presents a court case in which a first grader in a New York City public school fell from the monkey bars and broke his elbow while supervised by an after-school employee, who arranged for immediate medical treatment. The parent measured the depth of the wood chips and sued the school for negligence. The court found for the defendant because it had followed Consumer Product Safety Commission guidelines and the father's experts had not visited the site. Similar cases are discussed.
