United Methodist Church Daycare Sued for Abuse

An unnamed woman is suing a daycare associated with the Ministries of the United Methodist Church on behalf of her son for abuse she alleges occurred at the daycare.

According to the complaint, on May 7, 2009, defendant Jerome Morgan, an employee of the Marcy Center, a daycare center on S. Springfield in Chicago, "attacked, assaulted and battered" the minor plaintiff.

The complaint goes on to state that defendants named - including the Chicago Board of Education which controlled the elementary school where minor plaintiff was enrolled at the time - owe a duty to its students to protect them from "sexual assault and/or battery by its employees."
