    Lawsuit filed over suicide death of 9-year-old Lewisville student.

    A family has filed a lawsuit against the Lewisville school district, accusing officials of ignoring warning signs of bullying that led to their 9-year-old son committing suicide last year.

    Fourth-grader Montana Lance of The Colony hanged himself in the nurse's bathroom at Stewart Creek Elementary School in the Lewisville school public district a year ago. The lawsuit was filed Friday.

    The parents said the last year has been extremely difficult.

    District spokeswoman Karen Permetti said the school system does not comment on pending litigation, but that an internal investigation found that bullying was not connected to the suicide.
