Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP Files Lawsuits Against The Children’s Village Under New York’s Child Victims Act

Click below to share this article:

In the mid-seventies, a judge placed a nine-year-old troubled boy in the custody of The Children’s Village, a facility for delinquent and dependent youth located in Dobbs Ferry, New York. No child should endure what is said to have happened next. 

A recent lawsuit claims that while in the care and custody of The Children’s Village, the boy was sexually abused by staff members and fellow residents. The victim further claims that he told several staff members about the abuse, and that after the allegations of abuse were reported, one of the alleged abusers, Bob Ellis, found out and threatened the plaintiff’s life. 

The victims alleges that The Children’s Village knew about the sex abuse, but instead of taking action to investigate and provide a safe environment, staff and administrators used their authority to discourage or prevent victims and their families from disclosing such abuse. If so, The Children’s Village chose to ignore the obvious and failed to protect its young and often most vulnerable young patients.

Victims of abuse now have an opportunity to seek justice under New York’s Child Victims Act, which allows adult victims of childhood sexual abuse a one-year window to file civil lawsuits, regardless of when the abuse happened. Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP has filed a lawsuit against The Children’s Village on behalf of this former child victim.
