The family of Joaquin Del Core is suing a classmate at his Illinois elementary school, alleging the other boy kicked, pushed, choked and threatened to kill him, a move that comes as more children and their families turn to the courts to deal with bullying.

The two children, who finished third grade this month, attend Robert Frost Elementary School in Mount Prospect, Ill., about 30 miles northwest of Chicago.
