In a neighborhood in Sunnyvale, California, residents complained about Vidyut Gopal and Parul Agrawal’s 11 year old son who has been battling autism. They said that he was biting people and become a menace to others. The parents have been taking the necessary steps to help the child live a normal life by meditations, therapeutic classes and so much more.
Thinking that may cause calmness in their lives, instead they were hit with a lawsuit from the Arlington Court that their son was a “public nuisance.” This has resulted in major outrage among parents of children with disabilities. The couple who filed the compliant stated that the boy’s behavior was “unquantified chilling effect on the hot local real estate market.”
The Santa Clara County Court issued a preliminary injunction against them to make sure their son does not assault anyone or their personal property. The case will return the week of September 21st to determine if the plaintiff should have access to the boy’s school and medical records.
The boy’s parents are going to do everything they can do not only continue helping their son but also start raising awareness about autism so people understand what this disease does to a person.
Although not all neighbors were for the lawsuit against the autistic boy, many of them still believe it was necessary for the couple to request that they better supervise and control their son’s behavior. Over the years the boy has allegedly struck a baby with his and, sat on a neighbor’s cat and tried running into people with his bike.
Regardless of the outcome of this trial, Gopal and Agrawal state that they have lost hope to ever returning into their original home.
