Sauder Schelkopf is investigating potential lawsuits against Hotchkiss School, a private boarding school in Lakeville, Connecticut for sexual abuse of students at the hands of trusted faculty and staff members for at least four decades. It is alleged that school administrators were notified of this behavior but did very little beyond offering a paid leave of one faculty member. It is alleged that the school’s medical director performed unnecessary vaginal exams.
Sauder Schelkopf has a nationally recognized sexual assault practice with significant experience fighting for sexual abuse victims. Our former sexual assault prosecutors have extensive experience investigating and trying hundreds of sexual assault cases on behalf of victims of all ages. Sauder Schelkopf, and co-counsel, recently reached a $215 million settlement on behalf of female patients of Dr. George Tyndall, a gynecologist at the University of Southern California accused of sexually assaulting students since the 1990s. We currently represent survivors of clergy sexual abuse in dioceses throughout the country. We have a class action lawsuit pending on behalf of males who were sexually abused by Dr. Richard Strauss, the Ohio State team doctor, while they were students and student-athletes at Ohio State University. We represent female patients of gynecologist Dr. Patrick Sutton of Huntington Memorial Hospital in Pasadena, California accused of inappropriate sexual conduct and comments during examinations and deliveries.
