CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - Natrona County school officials have appointed an attorney to review their handling of a bullying incident on a school bus and a fight that occurred later.

The Casper Star-Tribune reported Friday attorney Craig Silva will look into the district’s response to an October incident that left a seventh-grade girl with a concussion.

Two students were suspended for fighting, including the injured girl. Two others received unspecified punishment for bullying.

Amber O’Donnell, the injured girl’s mother, says three girls pinned her daughter against a fence and beat her.

School officials gave a different account, disputing the assertion that more than two girls were in the fight. They also say that when two of the girls got off the bus, the one who was later injured followed the other girl instead of heading home.
