Seattle Catholic School Settles Former Student’s Sexual Abuse Lawsuit for $2.425 Million

A private catholic school in Seattle will pay a $2.425 million settlement to a former student who was allegedly sexually abused by a former teacher and softball coach.

“Seattle Prep authorities knew [the teacher] was a danger to female students before and during the time our client attended the school. And they had to have known all the dangers inherent with teachers selectively sexually targeting students,” said the former student’s attorneys Darrell Cochran, founding partner, and Bridget Grotz, senior associate, of Pfau Cochran Vertitis Amala law.

The former student sued Seattle Preparatory School in 2022, alleging the school “willfully turned a blind eye” to the former coach’s actions off of the field. The school previously denied the allegation.
