Are her parents permanently absent, or were they just unable to make it to see the principal this time? Ask the bully's parents how they'd feel if all the kids s/he targeted counter sued for all the physical and mental harm caused, and see if they're still willing to go ahead with the lawsuit.

Those dumbass parents don't realize how lucky they are that their child is alive despite having a history of bullying other kids, because especially in today's climate, there's always a psychopath that shows up to school with a weapon to put an end to bullying, and s/he has a chance to learn from his/her behavior. As for the school, they should've recommended the bully for expulsion instead of your god-daughter, given that s/he has a history of bullying others with violence included and your god-daughter (I assume) was simply standing up for herself, but I guess that zero tolerance crap only applies to people that refuse to take shit from a bully, and not the people actually doing the bullying.

I would not put it past the bully's parents for making the injuries seem worse than they actually are. They know their kid is in the wrong, but they still want to sue the victim's family? Something is not right here, and if they really want to sue, they should sue the school for letting things get that far (from bullying to a trip to the hospital).

You are *not* the legal guardian of the child unless the court appoints/awards you custody. If you are the legal
guardian, then I'd start worrying.

Godparents is usually just a title for presenting the child at Catholic baptism and takes responsibility of religious education, and MAYBE listed as the requested family to take in a child per the parent's wishes if the child is orphaned.
If you didn't have a court assign you responsibility, they can't do anything to you.

I sent a boy to the hospital because he jumped on my back while I surfaced in the school pool. I was doing endurance testing for how far in feet I could swim under water for a better grade.

Dimwit landed on me, drug me under, and bear hugged me under water right as I was trying to breathe, so I instantly took water in my lungs and squirmed and flailed in obvious distress!

I spin around and tried to put my foot on his thigh to push away. No difference to him. Did I mention I had school issued swim flippers on, with metal ribs along the foot and extending past the toes?

I found some soft fleshy squishy part of his body and started digging my flippers' tines as deep and as hard as I could until he let go! Right into the Slim Jim and 2 cherries

I shredded his swim trunks, and he needed stitches on *other* parts. He screamed for me to be suspended because I hurt him while he stood there with his ripped trunks.

He was told what a fight or flight instinct is, HE is being suspended, and may be charged with attempted homicide.

No one suspended/expelled me, no suing. His own damn fault. If I drowned in the pool by his hand, well... getting his entire lap shredded would be the least of his problems.

And I dare say once that story got around, I never got harassed again. Or a date!

Pit the school against the bully's parents, say that if there is a lawsuit the school will be implicated as complacent to the bullying that provoked this, even if nothing comes of the lawsuit their reputation will sink because of this. Also, run to grab every document the school has about the bullying to prevent them from covering it up. Finally, buckle up, lawyers are assholes in court, they'll do nasty stuff, like saying you didn't raise her right and she's violent because of that. Good luck.

Godparents can get legal custody of a child and become the legal guardian, in the event of the passing of the parents or something like abuse/illness where the biological parents can't continue caring and raising the child.

The question is, is this godmother legally appointed to be responsible? If she is then yes she can be sued for damages.
