A New Jersey student who claims that he was subjected to years of bullying has sued two school districts.

The suit, filed in late February in Superior Court in Flemington, claims that the Hunterdon Central Board of Education and Flemington-Raritan Board of Education failed to properly address the issue.

The boy, his parents and the students who allegedly did the bullying are identified only by their initials in the suit. It claims that the abuse — which included taunting, name calling and physical bullying — started in fourth grade and continued into high school.

The suit claims that over the years, the young man developed serious health issues, missing significant periods of school for hospitalization.

The boy’s parents reportedly spoke with teachers, administrators and guidance counselors on numerous occasions before approaching the police, but the bullying allegedly continued.

The districts have not filed their answers to the complaint, and officials from Hunterdon Central declined to comment on the pending case. Officials with the Flemington-Raritan School District had no comment as well.

No court dates have been scheduled.
