NEW YORK, Sept. 10, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP, a law firm based in New York City, has filed a lawsuit in Westchester County Supreme Court (Index # 59823/2020), alleging that from 1984 - 1985, when Plaintiff was 11-12 years old, Plaintiff was repeatedly sexually abused while a camper at Camp Shane, an overnight weight loss camp for children in Sullivan County, New York. It is alleged that a drama counselor engaged in unpermitted sexual abuse including oral sex, masturbation, kissing and fondling 10-12 times over the course of two summers. Throughout the period in which the abuse occurred, Defendant was generally negligent, it negligently employed and retained employees and/or agents who sexually abused minor residents and gave them access to children. This lawsuit arises out of Plaintiff's significant damages.
This lawsuit was filed under New York's Child Victims Act which allows innocent victims of child sexual abuse, like this child, the opportunity to seek compensation and hold their perpetrators accountable. Prior to the enactment of the Child Victims Act last year, the statute of limitations would have already expired for this child sexual abuse victim. Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP has filed a lawsuit against Camp Shane on behalf of this adult survivor of child sexual abuse.
