An attorney for the family of Mallory Grossman said Tuesday that he's filing a notice of intent to sue the Rockaway Township school district for negligence.

Mallory took her own life in June after what her family says was months of bullying by several of her classmates.

Attorney Bruce Nagel says Mallory's parents pleaded with school officials but "nothing was done."

An attorney for the school district says in an email the district hasn't seen the notice yet but anticipates making a statement once it is reviewed.
