School Abuse

On behalf of six students of an alternative school in Rockland County, Marc S. Albert filed suit alleging both physical and emotional injuries which the students suffered at the hands of violent and abusive staff members. After a lengthy litigation uncovered documents supporting the plaintiffs’ claims of abuse, Mr. Albert brought the case to a successful resolution through a confidential seven figure settlement.

The school, which was founded in 1990, receives foster-care children by referral from New York City and state child welfare agencies. At the time the case was filed, it housed 150 to 200 youths from ages 12 to 20. The suit, which was filed in State Supreme Court in the Bronx, accused the staff of carrying knives and guns, abusing drugs and alcohol, and beating, choking and illegally injecting their charges with antipsychotic drugs like Thorazine. It also alleged that some members of the staff offered to share marijuana with the children under their care and harassed them verbally, warning them to ‘’sleep with one eye open’’ and telling them they would likely ‘’wind up dead or in jail.’’


THE VICTIMS OF THE ABUSE NOT ONLY RECEIVED JUST COMPENSATION FOR THE PHYSICAL INJURIES AND EMOTIONAL TORTURE THAT THEY SUFFERED WHILE ATTENDING THE SCHOOL, BUT ALSO WERE PROVIDED WITH A SENSE OF CLOSURE AS TO A TIME IN THEIR LIVES THAT THEY WOULD CERTAINLY LIKE TO FORGET.


Mr. Albert’s investigation into the school and its staff brought to light a horrific atmosphere where students essentially lived in fear. The victims of the abuse not only received just compensation for the physical injuries and emotional torture that they suffered while attending the school, but also were provided with a sense of closure as to a time in their lives that they would certainly like to forget.

When I was seriously injured in a car accident, I didn’t know where to turn. I was confined to my home, couldn’t work and was being besieged with medical bills from doctors and hospitals. I feel so lucky to have found Marc and his firm. They took care of everything for me and allowed me to concentrate on my recovery. It put my mind completely at ease to know that Marc was handling me case. He held my hand through the entire process and I was ecstatic with the result. Marc is the very best at what he does!
