DRZ represented several students of a private school who had been physically assaulted and abused by older students. The older boys had branded the younger boys and put them through hazing rituals that even resulted in broken bones. The school had permitted the older students to discipline and control the younger students, without any supervision by adults. The case resulted in confidential settlement on the eve of trial.
