Over the last few years, a large number of states have passed new laws eliminating or significantly expanding their statute of limitations on sexual abuse lawsuits. So far, however, Maryland has not joined this movement to make it easier for sex abuse victims to sue. Recent investigations uncovering sexual abuse at one of Baltimore’s leading private schools might help change this.
Investigation Uncovers Sexual Abuse at the Gilman School
Founded in 1897, the Gilman School is one of the oldest and most prestigious private schools in the Baltimore Region. For decades Gilman has enjoyed a relatively pristine reputation. Last summer, however, the school announced that it was conducting its own private investigation into allegations of sexual abuse by Gilman employees.
