Clients were four young girls that alleged they were each sexually assaulted by a former teacher many years before when they were in the 3rd grade. Each client came forward at different times and gave very similar descriptions as to what happened to them. After the criminal case concluded, we brought suit against both the teacher and the school for various claims. The case presented difficulty as both defendants denied liability and the allegations took place many years prior. Approximately two years into the litigation, and after extensive investigation, the cases settled at mediation awarding our clients $300,000.00.
