There's an update on an ABC 36 News exclusive about a lawsuit filed against the Clark County School System.

A couple is suing the district claiming 2 years ago their daughter was put in a dark, padded room, alone, as a punishment.

Alyssa Lucas was a kindergarten student at Fannie Bush Elementary School.

For the first time Thursday the school system's Attorney Henry Rosenthal commented to ABC 36.

"Obviously we're going to deny that there was any harm done to this child," says Rosenthal.

The attorney for the Lucases got in touch with ABC 36 Thursday afternoon.

She says the parents have no comment on the lawsuit.
