The child attended a Portland elementary school and an after-school program operated by Multnomah County in partnership with Latino Network and Portland Public Schools. Portland Public Schools says it is investigating the new allegations included in the lawsuit. Multnomah County says it doesn’t comment on pending litigation. Latino Network says it takes the allegations seriously.
