Seven separate writs issued in massive abuse case

Arnold Thomas & Becker has issued seven separate legal proceedings in the Supreme Court of Victoria against the Trustees of the Christian Brothers alleging the abuse of young boys throughout the 1970s and early 1980s at Christian Brothers College (now Emmanuel College).

Our clients, who were all children at the time the abuse started, were allegedly physically and sexually abused by Brothers at the school over a period of several years, well into their teens.

We’re currently pursuing claims for dozens of victims of abuse perpetrated at Surf Coast-based institutions, including the Department of Human Services, a number of schools, an orphanage and other facilities.
