Boarding School Abuse

About Boarding School Abuse »

Boarding School Abuse denotes a range of illegal and improper acts often perpetrated against students by school faculty members, administrators or staff/employees involving sexual assault of varying degrees. The assault can be a one-time, non-consensual encounter or it can involve several assaults within an ongoing interaction. More than 60 private schools in New England have accusations of sexual abuse occurring on their campuses. Most lawsuits have settled confidentially, which means that any payout to the victims is not disclosed. Read more about recent publicized abuse reports here.

Statute of Limitations »

Because a Boarding School Abuse case can involve both a criminal prosecution and a civil claim, more than one statute of limitations (SOL) is likely to apply. In all situations, an analysis of these SOL time limits can only be made after the relevant facts and circumstances are known.
