Maryland’s Largest School District to Pay a $9.7 Million Settlement to Sexual Assault Victims

A massive payout is going to the victims of a 2018 sexual assault scandal at Damascus High School.

Four former Damascus High School football players sued Montgomery County Public Schools in 2020. According to the lawsuit, the four minors were victims of “vicious sexual assaults occurring in the unsupervised football locker room” in both 2017 and 2018.

The case grew out of an initial criminal complaint against a number of football players who were allegedly involved in a “brooming” incident in the locker room. The lawsuit says the defendants knew about the sex assaults at “Damascus and other high schools” prior to October 2018 incident.
