At Lewis & Llewellyn, we continue to lead the fight for justice on behalf of survivors of childhood sexual abuse. Recently, a team led by Paul Llewellyn and Nathalie Fayad filed a high-profile lawsuit against The Branson School, an elite private school located in Marin County, California. According to the lawsuit, the school failed to protect a generation of young girls from a known sexual predator who was employed by the school. The complaint alleges that the school’s Director of Athletics and soccer coach subjected the firm’s client, and others, to years of sexual abuse in the late 1970s, when they were children under the care of Branson.
The lawsuit attracted nationwide press coverage; including an in-depth profile in the San Francisco Chronicle by Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Matthias Gafni. Further details are also available in a press release about the case.
