Civil case proceedings
- A Lawrence family has filed a lawsuit against the operators of a local preschool and child-care center, alleging that the school negligently left a child unsupervised on Jan. 28, 1992. On behalf of their daughter, Daniel and Brenda Penzel filed the suit against Sunshine Acres Montessori School and three of its representatives: Susan Mozykowski, Debbie Dillon and Lisa Voth. The suit, filed in Douglas County District Court, asks for damages in excess of $50,000 for each of two counts. Upon receiving a summons, the defendants have 20 days to answer the petition.
