The civil liability of a youth center successfully defended!

Our firm successfully defended a youth center in a civil liability case of more than $10M. After a 15-day trial, Plaintiff’s action was dismissed with costs.

The Judgment in question relates more specifically to the civil liability involving the social workers of said youth centre as well as the immunity from prosecution from which they benefited, in good faith, within the scope of their duties.

Subsequently, the Judgment was appealed. Following the presentation of a Motion to Dismiss The Appeal, the appeal was also dismissed with costs, on August 6, 2014.
