This class proceeding concerns the operation of an educational facility responsible for the care and control of children with learning disabilities.
Since 1977, the Sheila Morrison School (the “School”) has provided a private residential and day school program to children with perceived and actual learning disabilities. It is alleged that the Defendants’ failure to care for, protect and act in the best interests of the Students resulted in loss or injury suffered by them, including psychological trauma, pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life and exacerbation of existing mental disabilities.
This action was certified as a class proceeding by the Honourable Mr. Justice Perell on June 7, 2010. The class of persons it seeks to represent is detailed in the Statement of Claim, issued on May 27, 2009. Generally, it is comprised of all persons who resided at the School or attended as day students between 1977 and 2009, as well as certain of their family members.
The parties have reached a $4 million settlement of the Sheila Morrison Schools class action. In return for this payment, there will be a comprehensive release of all claims against the defendants.
