 A high school girl's basketball coach made a video that superimposed an orangutan's face over a black player's face, with monkey sounds, and showed the video to her class, the student claims in court.

Cloe Lane's father Fred Lane sued Blue Springs School District on behalf of his daughter, in Federal Court. The school district is the only defendant, though the coach and others are identified in the complaint.
