C.H. v. Rahway Board of Education, 2018 N.J. Super. Unpub. LEXIS 2527, Superior Appellate Division

Collision of student and teacher at a student fundraising basketball game is dismissed without evidence of recklessness.

The plaintiff’s appeal of the dismissal of her claim was denied. Her claim of negligence and intentional conduct for a collision did not present evidence of negligent supervision , recklessness or intent. As there were no facts to support the plaintiff’s claim, and no support for her argument that only negligence, not recklessness, standards should apply because the other player was a teacher, her appeal was denied.
