WHITEHALL, OHIO – Two families have filed a lawsuit in federal court against Christopher Litostansky, Whitehall City Schools and the City of Whitehall.  The families are asking for more than $2.5 million dollars in damages. Both have children that were assaulted by a Whitehall City School bus driver.

Litostansky, a 48 year old bus driver, was previously charged with endangering children by unlawful restraint and  assault charges. There are twelve different claims being made including civil rights violations, false imprisonment, civil assault, negligence, and infliction of emotional distress..

Police report that Litostansky is accused of restraining a child’s legs with a strap.  This child is an eleven year old boy who has a sever form of autism. He is also accused of assaulting a six year old girl by tossing her into her seat and poking her multiple times in the head with the handle of an umbrella.

Byron Potts is representing both families and states “Where there is smoke, there’s fire”. The mother of the little girl involved has said this did not start recently. Her daughter stated that these types of things also happened last year.

Litostansky resigned from his bus driver position last.
