PLAINTIFFS' COUNSEL IN WILLIAMSON V. SHEILA MORRISON SCHOOLS
TORONTO, Feb. 12, 2013 /CNW/ - On February 7, 2013, the parties entered
into a $4 million settlement of the class action relating to alleged
abuses at the Sheila Morrison School.
The Sheila Morrison School was a private school located in Utopia, near
Barrie, Ontario. The school was primarily directed at students with
learning disabilities, behavioural issues or special needs. The school
closed in 2009.
The settlement is subject to court approval and there will be a hearing
on March 12, 2013 to consider such approval.
The action was settled to the satisfaction of all parties and is, in the
view of the parties, fair, reasonable and in the best interests of the
Koskie Minsky LLP, a leading Canadian class action law firm, acts for
the plaintiffs and class members and supports the approval of the
settlement. This settlement, if approved, would provide compensation to
former students and would do so in a manner that accounts for how long
students attended the school and the experiences they suffered.
