A family reached out to DRZ because a student at a private school had been sexually assaulted by other students. The perpetrators physically held down the student and sexually assaulted him with a physical device. The school initially declined to answer the family’s questions about what occurred and how it could have happened. DRZ became involved and then the school indicated it wanted to settle the case. Following a mediation, the child received a confidential settlement.
