The Connecticut Supreme Court affirms a $2.75 verdict for sex abuse against St. Francis Hospital. The plaintiff, known as Tim Doe 1 represented by Attorney Douglas Mahoney of Tremont Sheldon Robinson Mahoney, accused the hospital of negligent supervision of Reardon and failure in a duty to provide special care to children in its custody. The jury agreed with both his claims.
At trial, a jury awarded on July 8, 2011 Tim Doe 1 $2.75 million for the emotional trauma he said he began suffering as a child when Reardon used a phony growth study at the hospital as a pretext to sexually abuse him, his sister and hundreds of other children.
