Victim sues teacher, Catholic school board

A teacher convicted of assault for touching boys on the buttocks is being sued in civil court for $1.75 million.

The lawsuit, filed by the family of one of Rick Doran’s victims, also names the Windsor-Essex Catholic District School Board. The board has filed a countersuit against Doran, denying it had any knowledge of what court documents call Doran’s “depraved predilections.”

According to the boy’s lawsuit, Doran was his homeroom teacher at Holy Cross school in LaSalle. Doran would pat the boy on the bum, keep him in for recess and buy him pizza for lunch. Outside of school hours, Doran would turn up uninvited at the boy’s hockey games.

The statement filed with the court claims the boy became “withdrawn and unhappy about going to school,” after the inappropriate behaviour began and has “suffered serious emotional harm.”  (more...)
