The lawsuit names the Cleveland Metropolitan School District, E Prep and Village Prep Woodland Hills, the City of Cleveland, her killer Christopher Whittaker, Lynesha Richardson and Friends of Breakthrough Schools as the defendands.
Her parents, Damon DeFreeze and Donnesha Cooper, along with their attorneys Allen Boseman, Bradley Sherman and John Burke, filed the wrongful death lawsuit in Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas.
