A private Catholic high school in St. Paul has settled a lawsuit filed by a former student who was sexually assaulted by a weight room instructor six years ago.
Cameron Clarkson’s lawsuit alleged Cretin-Derham Hall was negligent because it failed to supervise Gail E. Gagne, failed to prevent her misconduct and failed to protect him.
The Star Tribune reports terms of the settlement haven’t been finalized. An attorney for Gagne, who also is named as a plaintiff in the filing, told the newspaper she settled with the student for $1.
The Associated Press doesn’t usually name sexual assault victims but is naming Clarkson because he has chosen to speak out about his case.
