After a 10 year long legal battle, a victim who was sexually abused by a bus driver while attended St Ann’s special school has been awarded compensation from the Catholic Church.
DBH Managing Partner Peter Humphries is representing the victims from St Ann’s and says it is an enormous relief for the family to have their matter settled.
Peter believes there is now a willingness from the Church to resolve these cases and is hopeful that the other victims will have their matters settled soon.
There are still five families fighting for compensation from the Church.
