The lawsuit was filed Nov. 10 in the Western District of Missouri by Dovel & Luner, the legal team representing the mother and her son. They said her son was diagnosed with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder and autism spectrum disorder at 5 years old, after the mom began having concerns about his development.
