MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) - The mother of a Medford sophomore has filed a lawsuit after her son was injured by a pull-up bar that fell off a shelf.

The Mail Tribune reports (https://is.gd/OmoYqz ) that the lawsuit against the Medford School District is scheduled to go to trial in March in Jackson County Circuit Court.

According to the lawsuit, an unsecured, unattached pull-up bar fell about 8 feet off a shelf at North Medford High School and struck the boy’s head on May 17, 2013. The student suffered a head injury and was unable to attend school full0time for the remainder of his sophomore year.

The lawsuit is seeking up to $500,000 in damages.

In a response filed by the district, officials say they lack enough information to know whether the allegations are true.
