Attorney Charla Aldous, who in 2011 secured a $9.3 million verdict on behalf of a young girl at the Episcopal School of Dallas after an ESD teacher involved the girl in a sexual relationship, says cases such as this are indicators of misplaced priorities.
“The problem with these cases is that people in positions of power have their priorities all wrong,” says Ms. Aldous. “Time and again – and it happened in our case – those powerful people put the institution and its interests above the best interests of the child. Until and unless someone steps up and changes that order and says, ‘No. We are going to put children first. Period,’ until that happens, I think, unfortunately, we’re going to see this again and again. And it breaks my heart.”
