The Kent School in Kent, CT, is a defendant in a recent lawsuit filed by attorney Connecticut Paul A. Slager and Paul Mones who has sought admission pro hac vice to the Connecticut bar. The suit alleges that in the late 1980’s administrators at this exclusive private school failed to protect the female plaintiff from sexual abuse by a male teacher. Many private school sex abuse cases have come to light in the past few months, and this one alleges that the plaintiff was abused by a 50 year old teacher when she was just 15 years of age. She was just a sophomore at the time, and despite the fact that other faculty members knew about the abuse, nothing was done to stop it.
