Vlasac & Shmaruk Wins Decisive Victory for NJ Children!

Aug 30, 2016 @ 21 : 09 pm

Vlasac & Shmaruk congratulates partner, John M. Vlasac, Jr. for attaining a decisive Appellate Division victory in the matter of Child M v. Fennes, Cedar Hill Prep School and the Montville Board of Education which will protect every child in NJ from predators in our schools. As a clear result of Mr. Vlasac’s relentless pursuit for our child client’s rights and those of all children in NJ schools, there is now a precedent that will hold schools responsible for failing to properly vet teachers and staff that work with young children.

Additionally, this decision will not only hold schools liable for the harms of those negligently hired and/supervised but prior schools who know or have reason to know of an employee’s propensity to harm children and fail to properly report them to the State and knowingly conceal that knowledge will also face a jury. The attorneys at Vlasac & Shmaruk never stop fighting for the rights of our clients and the results we get often have profound effect on the rights of every NJ citizen!
