State Supreme Court Upholds $2.75 Million Verdict Against St. Francis Hospital

July 3, 2013

The Connecticut Supreme Court affirms a $2.75 million verdict for sex abuse against St. Francis Hospital. The plaintiff, known as Tim Doe 1 represented by Attorney of Tremont Sheldon P.C., accused the hospital of negligent supervision of Dr. 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 Tim Doe 1 $2.75 million on July 8, 2011 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.
