ROSELAND, N.J. (1010 WINS) -- The parents of a 12-year-old New Jersey girl who killed herself last year after months of cyberbullying by schoolmates are suing the Rockaway Board of Education and various school administrators.

Mallory Grossman was a student at Copeland Middle School when she took her own life last June.

Her family says she was the victim of malicious text messages including one that asked, "When are you going to kill yourself?"

Her parents said they urged school administrators, teachers and counselors to protect the sixth grader but they failed to act.

The suit alleges gross negligence.

The school has denied the allegations.
