WACO, TX (KXXV) -

The family of the girl that suffered from rope burns at Live Oak Classical School sued the school for at least $3 million on Monday.

The family claims three white boys put a rope around the neck of the 6th grader, who had allegedly been bullied throughout the year, while she was at a school camp out at a ranch in Blanco County last month.

The school said the whole thing was an accident.
