Immunity and Accountability
October 24, 2023

Sonia Book is a loving mother of three in the New Orleans area. After her daughter was abused several times by school officials, she sued to hold them accountable, but the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that all school officials are immune from lawsuits. The Fifth Circuit is the only circuit court in America that has created such a blanket immunity.

In October 2023, Sonia teamed up with IJ to ask the United States Supreme Court to hear her case challenging this immunity.
