National Sexual Abuse Lawsuits Against Ojai’s The Thacher School

Our National Attorneys Advocate for Students Victimized by Sexual Misconduct at The Thacher School

A co-ed private boarding school in Ojai, California, The Thacher School, has been met with a wave of sexual assault allegations from former and current students. In response, the elite school hired an independent law firm to conduct an investigation into these allegations—the results were heartbreaking, revealing 40 years of coverups.

If you or someone you love has been victimized by a faculty member or administrator at The Thacher School, our national legal team at KMD Law wants to fight for you. We are currently investigating instances of sexual abuse, harassment, rape, and other types of misconduct at The Thacher School. Further, we are also representing students who have been harmed by their peers.

Backed by a proven track record of success, we know how difficult and truly terrifying it can be to come forward as a survivor. You do not have to do it alone, however. We will stand by your side at every step of the way. As a testament to our firm’s commitment to you, you will not be charged a dime unless we win your case.

Sexual Misconduct Can Negatively Impact Survivors for Years

Unfortunately, the trauma of being subjected to sexual misconduct can take years to shake off, so much so that it is typical for it to lead to the development of physical and/or mental illnesses either immediately or later in life. When the sexual abuse happens during one’s youth, it can be even harder to move past what happened.

Studies have shown that childhood sexual abuse survivors are at a higher risk of developing various psychiatric disorders, such as:

  • Chronic depression
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Sleep disorders
  • Eating disorders
  • Substance abuse

Chronic pain, seizures, functional gastrointestinal disorders, and nonspecific pain and somatic symptoms were also common among child sex abuse survivors.

It is not hard to imagine how any of the above conditions could lead to a reduced quality and enjoyment of life. The idea that no one will believe them if they come forward with their story only exacerbates the problem. At KMD Law, we are proud to believe survivors. Even if another person has wrongfully blamed you for what happened, we stand firm in our belief that sexual abuse is never the fault of the victim. The law supports us in that statement.
