The family of a 12-year-old boy is suing the Los Angeles school district, claiming that three administrators asked the student to take part in a drug sting operation.
According to the lawsuit filed Thursday, the educators gave the boy cash and told him to buy drugs from a suspected drug dealer, even though the plan was not sanctioned by police.
The lawsuit says the sting was enacted after the boy told Porter Middle School administrators that a 14-year-old was selling marijuana on campus.
The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages.
Attorney Alexander Calfo says asking a minor to purchase drugs is a felony.
District spokeswoman Monica Carazo says she had not seen the lawsuit, so she could not comment
