On April 10, 2013, Van Dorn & Curtiss obtained a five million dollar verdict for a student who was sexually abused while attending an outdoor school. The school did nothing to protect its students from sexual abuse. The verdict is believed to be one of the highest ever awarded by a New England jury in this type of case. Van Dorn & Curtiss applauds its heroic client for having the courage to come forward and see this case through. It also recognizes its trial team, Robin Curtiss and Cristina Rousseau, for its effort and determination in litigating this important case.
Our firm is committed to increasing public awareness of the problem of child abuse. It is our belief that such awareness is instrumental in combating this heinous crime.
