The New York Post reports that Johan Nunez and Lana Lerner, a Jewish couple, are preparing a $100 million lawsuit against New York City following an antisemitic attack at their children's elementary school graduation in Brooklyn.

The altercation began when a student wore a "Free Palestine" cap and waved a Palestinian flag during the ceremony. Afterward, the student's family confronted Nunez and Lerner during a photo session, leading to Johan being assaulted from behind, choked, punched, and kicked, while their son and Lana were also subjected to violence.
