Episcopal School of Dallas found grossly negligent in handling of teacher sexual association with underage studentFollowing nine weeks of testimony, the Episcopal School of Dallas was found grossly negligent in how it handled a sexual association between a teacher and a 16-year-old student, and has been ordered to pay the girl's family at least $5 million.
Calling the decision of a jury "wrong," ESD denied culpability and vowed to appeal the verdict.
