JERSEY CITY (CN) - Parents say an Alcorr Transit bus driver showed hardcore pornography to 28 preschoolers on a field trip to the Land of Make Believe. Apparently it was inadvertent, but it continued "for several minutes" until the driver responded to "the screams and shouts of the parents."
The preschool, PRR Corp., says it hired Alcorr to take 28 children, ages 3 to 8, on a field trip. Apparently the bus driver watched the movie while the kids and parents were at the park, then left it on after the children returned for the ride home.
"As the bus was traveling, the children and adults were subjected to the graphic images and sound of said hardcore pornographic movie," according to the complaint in Hudson County Court. "The passengers were subjected to this for several minutes before the driver turned it off as a result of the screams and shouts of the parents.
"As a result of this incident, numerous parents removed their children from plaintiff's preschool, causing plaintiff a severe loss of income. Further, as a result of word of the incident spreading throughout the community, plaintiff suffered numerous cancellations in its enrollment and a great decrease in the number of applications for future enrollment, resulting in a severe loss of income."
Plaintiff is represented by Lonny Hirsch.
