    Plaintiff Coral Aviles, left, and her mother Diana Aviles, attend a news conference at The Mexican American Legal Defense in Los Angeles Thursday, July 21, 2011. MALDEF attorneys announced they have submitted paperwork in Los Angeles federal court to enable a lawsuit against the Bear Valley Unified School District in the mountains east of Los Angeles. Aviles, then a middle school student who wore a Mexico soccer jersey to class has taken steps toward suing a Southern California school district, saying officials failed to properly address racist remarks she alleges her teacher made over the shirt.
