In January, 2020, we filed a class-action lawsuit seeking to hold the State accountable for decades of physical abuse, sexual abuse, solitary confinement, deprivation of education, and civil rights violations. This lawsuit applies to every person who was ever a resident at any New Hampshire facility, including YDSU, ADC, the Tobey School, the Industrial School, and any and all group homes, no matter how long ago the abuse occurred. The lawsuit currently involves almost 280 plaintiffs who were housed at these facilities between the ages of 7-18 between the years of 1963-2018.
If you or a loved one was a victim of abuse at one of these facilities, we would like to help you seek justice and compensation.
YDC CLASS-ACTION LAWSUIT
The Sununu Youth Services Center (formally known as the Youth Development Center) was supposed to be a facility where juveniles charged with a crime would be detained, counseled, and rehabilitated. Instead, boys and girls were brutalized for decades by State employees whose sole job it was to protect them.
