Redlands Unified Agrees to Record-Breaking Settlement

Redlands Unified Agrees to Record-Breaking Settlement

Redlands

On Monday, attorneys for eight plaintiffs involved in three separate sexual abuse lawsuits against the Redlands Unified School District reached a settlement agreement between its clients and the school district. According to reports, the agreement was the largest sex abuse litigation settlement in the district’s history—$15.7 million.  

Six of the plaintiffs/victims were allegedly assaulted by former special education teacher Kevin Kirkland, one of the plaintiffs was purportedly victimized by former English teacher Brian Townsley, and the eighth individual alleged she was victimized by still another teacher, former theater director Daniel Bachman.

Most of the multi-million-dollar settlement costs will be paid by the district’s insurer. Morgan Stewart of Manly, Stewart & Finaldi, who represented the plaintiffs, all former Redlands students, in the lawsuits said, “The size of this settlement reflects the immense harm done to our clients and the continuing failure of the Redlands Unified School District to protect students from sexual predators.”
