NEW YORK, July 9, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP, a law firm based in New York City, has filed a lawsuit in Westchester County Supreme Court (56972/2020), alleging child sexual assault at The Children's Village of Dobbs Ferry, NY.
From approximately 1970-1971, Plaintiff, then a minor, was repeatedly sexually abused while a resident at The Children's Village. Several older minor residents between 14-15 years old engaged in unpermitted sexual abuse of the Plaintiff. Children's Village was aware or should have been aware of the serious problem of child sexual abuse within its programs. Throughout the period in which the abuse occurred, Defendant was generally negligent, it negligently employed and retained employees and/or agents who negligently allowed minor residents to sexually abuse other minor residents. This lawsuit arises out of Plaintiff's significant damages from that sexual abuse
Multiple Survivors of The Children's Village have contacted Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP, a law firm based in New York City, alleging sexual assault at The Children's Village, a facility for delinquent and dependent youth. Many sexual assault survivors are afraid to come forward for fear of not being believed or being blamed for what happened to them. Many times, when the sexual assault survivors finally came forward to share their truth, the statute of limitations would have already expired. New York's Child Victims Act, signed into law last year, now allows innocent victims of child sexual abuse, like these children, the opportunity to seek compensation and hold their perpetrators accountable.
