JOSHUA - The parents of a Joshua teen who killed himself after he was bullied are suing the school district and several officials in federal court.

The lawsuit accuses the parties of violating Jon Carmichael's civil rights.

The suit claims they ignored repeated acts of bullying at Loflin Middle School, along with the 13-year-old's pleas for help.

The suit was filed on the first anniversary of Carmichael's death.
