Throughout the period in which the abuse occurred, it is alleged that Defendants were negligent, provided inadequate security to minor students, negligently employed, negligently supervised, and negligently retained employees, and/or agents who sexually abused minor students, including Plaintiff, and gave them access to children.
This lawsuit was filed under New York's Child Victims Act which allows innocent victims of child sexual abuse the opportunity to seek compensation and hold their perpetrators accountable.
