A former Oologah-Talala High School student and his parents have filed a negligent lawsuit against the school's district and a former teacher who is accused of raping the student.
According to court documents, the lawsuit for relief against the school by the former student and family alleges breach of fiduciary duties; negligence; negligent hiring, retaining and supervision of an employee; deprivation of the student's constitutional rights; and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
Additionally, claims for relief were filed against former teacher Kathryn Michelle Wilmott, 30, of Owasso, who was accused of engaging in sexual activity with the male student while attending school there.
The alleged activity with the student took place at an Owasso address between Dec. 24, 2015 and Jan. 8, 2016, according to a document provided by Oklahoma Attorney General's Office.
The court document noted communication between Wilmott and the student was frequent, using an application on her cell phone and other students' phones.
Relief sought in the same lawsuit as with the school against Wilmott by the student and family lists additional claims of battery; intentional infliction of emotional distress; and loss of consortium of a child.
A state multicounty grand jury last year indicted Wilmott for rape in the second degree. The case against her is still pending.
Oologah-Talala Superintendent Max Tanner released a statement Friday afternoon, stating, “We are aware of the lawsuit and not all of the allegations in it are accurate, but because of ongoing litigation, we cannot comment further at this time.”
