Sexual Abuse/Title IX Litigation
Morris Laing attorneys have successfully represented child victims of sexual abuse by teachers. Teachers are in a position of trust with their students. A federal law known as Title IX protects the rights of such students to be free from student-on-student and teacher-on-student sexual harassment and discrimination, and makes schools responsible for these bad acts when the school had actual knowledge of the abuse and acts with deliberate indifference by failing to stop the abuse. This litigation is sensitive as well as complex, and our attorneys are skilled in handling these cases on behalf of the victims.
