Were You Sexually Abused In A New Jersey Private School?
The statute of limitations has been eliminated in New Jersey if you want to bring a civil lawsuit for sexual abuse. For the first time, many people will be able to seek justice against those who harmed them after a lifetime of damaging effects.
New Jersey is home to some of the most prestigious private schools and boarding schools in the country. Unfortunately, where there are children, there are usually predators looking to exploit them for their own deviant desires. The private schools of New Jersey are no exception. Child predators have worked in both boarding schools and day schools throughout the state. Our attorneys have decades of experience representing victims of sexual abuse in schools. If you or your child have been a victim of sexual abuse at a New Jersey private school, we can help.
Abuse Can Happen In Any Private School
We have identified 17 private schools in that are alleged to have been home to one or more perpetrators of sexual abuse. In our own investigation, the Horowitz Law team identified seventeen New Jersey private schools that have been the subject of public allegations of abuse – and the list includes some of the most well-known schools in America. In many cases, the abuse is alleged to have occurred over extended periods of time and involved multiple students. A former priest-teacher at The Delbarton School in Morristown, Timothy Brennan, admitted to molesting more than 50 children during his career for example.
Some schools have already been sued by abuse survivors and, in many cases, those lawsuits resulted in large settlements. In many cases, the schools conducted internal investigations that identified multiple abusers who had not previously been publicly identified as a part of the settlement.
