Moraga School District agrees to pay $14M to two sex abuse victims

There are new developments on a sexual abuse lawsuit against the Moraga School District, which has agreed to pay $14 million to two women.

Our media partner, The Contra Costa Times, reports it is the largest per-student molestation settlement in the nation.

The former students sued, claiming their reports of abuse by a teacher in the 1990's were ignored.

The district says it has since improved student safeguards and changed how it handles molestation claims.
