$1,200,000 Settlement – Sexual Abuse at Boarding School
A 17-year-old male student at a private U.S. boarding school was groomed and abused by a female teacher more than 30 years his senior. When the student tried to end the abuse, the teacher abused the power of her authority and docked the student’s grades. The student graduated in 2016 and has needed years of psychiatric treatment and therapy. The case was settled for $1.2 million, one of the largest settlements involving a male victim and a female perpetrator.
