The mother of an intellectually disabled girl filed a lawsuit against Starbucks, Pittsburgh Public Schools, and a property management company, alleging negligence leading to the sexual assault of her daughter.

The lawsuit claims that the school failed to provide adequate supervision, transportation care, and safety measures, while Starbucks and the property management company neglected to address increasing crime issues near their businesses.

The incident involved the girl being led off campus by three male students, sexually assaulted in a Starbucks bathroom, and then in a nearby empty building.

“Pittsburgh Public Schools failed to create a safe environment for my client to go to and from school when it knew that she needed one. And Starbucks and Kappa failed to protect my client from the violence of others when they knew their businesses were causing criminal activity to occur. The painful result was her sexual assault,” attorney Alec Wright said.

“When we learned of these allegations, we acted with extreme urgency to support law enforcement throughout their investigation,” a Starbucks spokesperson stated. “Our goal is always to keep our stores safe for our partners and our customers. Due to the sensitive nature of this matter, and out of respect for all involved, we cannot comment further right now.”

The lawsuit has highlighted the lack of oversight for the girl at school due to her disabilities and the failure to address safety concerns despite prior incidents of student-based violence.

“It just makes me feel angry to know that there was such little oversight or protection for my daughter. If she leaves in the morning to go to school, then she should return home from school safe,” the mother said.

“Taylor Allderdice let her be lured off campus, and Starbucks let her be attacked in its bathrooms. It’s all just so frustrating and disheartening. It’s just very hard to describe.”
