PLAINTIFFS' COUNSEL IN WILLIAMSON V. SHEILA MORRISON SCHOOLS
TORONTO, March 19, 2013 /CNW/ - On March 12, 2013, the Honourable
Justice Paul Perell of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice approved
the $4 million settlement of Sheila Morrison Schools class action. The
action involved allegations of abuse of students at the school from its
opening in 1977 to its closure in 2009.
The Sheila Morrison School was a private school located in Utopia, near
Barrie, Ontario. The school was primarily directed at students with
learning disabilities, behavioural issues or special needs. The school
closed in 2009.
Justice Perell found that the settlement was fair, reasonable and in the
best interests of the class members, particularly in light of the risks
if the action continued: "[i]n my opinion, having regard to very
substantial risk factors and the considerably [sic] difficulties associated with recovering insurance proceeds, the
settlement achieved is a very good result for the class members."
The claims process has begun. Former students of Sheila Morrison Schools
may complete a claims form seeking compensation from the settlement
funds. Former students should send their claims to the claims
administrator, Crawford Class Action Services, by no later than June
