Plaintiff sued New York State alleging that their son was subjected to electric shock punishment while a student at the Judge Rotenberg Center, a Massachusetts private residential school for children with mental or emotional disabilities, due to defendant's negligence in failing to properly investigate and/or regulate the school while keeping the school on a list of approved out-of-state residential educational facilities.
