Hyde Schools / JLC Law Firm is helping former students of Hyde School

Justice Law Collaborative is helping Hyde Students who have complaints.

The Hyde Boarding Schools of Woodstock, CT and Bath, ME

JLC is currently representing a group of brave survivors who attended the Hyde School (both the Woodstock, CT location and the Bath, ME location). Since its founding in 1966, the school has been marketed as a behavioral modification program for teenagers (ages 14-18) with emotional or behavioral problems.

The Hyde School case stands as a notable instance within the sphere of education and parental rights. This case, which garnered widespread attention, unfolded in the late 1990s, shedding light on the intricate balance between a school's disciplinary measures and the rights of parents to advocate for their children. At its core, the Hyde School revolved around the expulsion of two students from the prestigious Hyde boarding school. The school, renowned for its character-based education and emphasis on personal growth, faced scrutiny when it expelled the students for alleged drug-related infractions.

The dispute escalated when the students' parents, dissatisfied with the school's decision, pursued legal action. They contended that the expulsion was unjust and that the school had overstepped its boundaries. This case quickly evolved beyond a mere disciplinary matter, becoming a focal point for discussions surrounding parental rights, school authority, and the responsibility of educational institutions in shaping students' characters.

The legal battle ensued, with arguments centering on whether the school had the right to set its own disciplinary standards and whether the parents had a legitimate claim in challenging the institution's decision-making process. The case drew attention from educators, legal experts, and parents across the nation, sparking debates on the delicate balance between a school's autonomy in disciplining its students and the role of parents in advocating for their children's best interests.

Ultimately, the Hyde School case concluded with a settlement that involved both parties, but its impact reverberated throughout the education sector. It highlighted the need for clear communication between schools and parents, the importance of transparent disciplinary policies, and the significance of finding common ground in fostering students' growth while respecting parental concerns.

Accounts of sexual abuse, physical abuse, emotional abuse, medical neglect and corporal punishment were rampant at Hyde, as corroborated by the courageous survivors who have shared their truth with JLC. JLC is working diligently to ensure that Hyde survivors obtain the justice they deserve.

We at JLC understand that the fight for justice is never-ending, regardless of the verdict. If you or someone you know is in need of legal assistance regarding this case, please call our office at 508-230-2700 or email us at [email protected]

Physical, sexual, and emotional abuse of students at educational institutions is a recognized and foreseeable risk from which schools have an obligation to proactively protect their students. Schools can be liable if they do not adequately screen candidates prior to hiring them or if they fail to adequately supervise them once they are hired. They can also be liable for their actions or inactions following allegations of abuse, as well as for failing to implement and enforce safeguards to prevent abuse by school employees, staff members, volunteers and student peers. Often times, school administrators will intentionally cover up incidents of abuse and harassment to protect their reputation, fostering a culture of abuse and allowing it to continue unchecked for decades.

Abuse at schools can take many forms:
Sexual Abuse and grooming by staff, teachers, coaches, administrators, or other students

Physical Abuse

Hazing, Bullying and Cyberbullying

Emotional Abuse

Unnecessary and Embarrassing Punishments

Failure by the School to Report Abuse, Mistreatment, and Serious Mental Health Issues

Retaliation for Reporting Abuse or Assault

Hyde Schools / Re: Reddit - recordings of Laura Gauld and Tom Bragg

The original link seems to be gone but here is the new one from Reddit:

From facebook:
Human rights attorney Jessica Jackson, who survived kidnapping, a wilderness program, and Hyde School, speaks at the press conference to introduce federal bill #sicaa to Congress, surrounded by U.S. Senator Jeff Merkley, Paris Hilton, Sixto Martin Cancel of Think of Us, and Caroline Cole.

Jessica Jackson works on helping prisoners, helps Kim Kardashian with her legal journey, is a former mayor of Mill Valley, CA, is the CAO of Reform, Co-Founder of #cut50.

Video of speech The part about forced exercise and being made to call herself "dirty" over and over again in front of the whole school is a direct reference to what she experienced at Hyde.)

Hyde School put her in their "alumni hall of honor" even though she dropped out of Hyde the day she turned 18 and (as she said in her speech) spent the next few years massively struggling with self-hate, drug addiction, and depression. It's pretty gross that Hyde seems to try to take credit for any of her success. In my opinion, Jessica succeeded IN SPITE OF the trauma she endured in the troubled teen industry, NOT BECAUSE Hyde provided her with some kind of life-changing help and support.

sicaa is the Stop Institutional Child Abuse Act, a federal bill.


Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein, LLP:
For some reason the original link that was up a couple weeks ago is down, but you can still contact them via their phone number or the contact form (, just put in the comment section that it's about Hyde School.

Hyde School Abuse Investigation
Lieff Cabraser is currently investigating claims of abuse and neglect at Hyde School, a behavior-modification boarding school in Bath, Maine. Founded in 1966, the school seeks to serve teenagers with emotional, familial, and/or behavioral problems. Unfortunately, Hyde School has faced numerous allegations of mistreatment over the years. When taken as a whole, these allegations create a frightening portrait of Hyde School as an unsafe institution where some of the country's most vulnerable children have been suffering horrific abuses for decades.

Survivors have shared disturbing reports of various forms of abuse, including emotional abuse, medical neglect, sexual abuse, forced manual labor, and punitive punishments. In some cases, former students have developed PTSD as a result of their time at Hyde.

In 1988, 14-year-old James Roman tragically died of a brain aneurysm on campus. Survivors have since questioned the treatment he may have received prior to his death, given Hyde's alleged culture of dismissing student complaints about physical ailments. In 2002, the parents of a former Hyde School student filed a lawsuit after their daughter was allegedly sexually assaulted by the then-Dean of Students, Larry Dubinsky. The case was settled for an undisclosed sum in 2003. According to messages posted on the online message board Fornits (a community website dedicated to exposing abuse in the "troubled teen" industry) through 2023, at least 160 former residents of Hyde have passed away since attending the program, with causes including drug overdoses, suicides, accidents, and more.

Abuse survivors have the right to seek justice in civil court. The attorneys in our firm's Survivors' Rights practice group represent individuals nationwide in sexual abuse lawsuits against the institutions - schools, churches, hospitals, youth organizations, etc. - that harbored predators and failed to prevent or properly respond to incidents of sexual abuse. We have won multiple significant settlements over cases of sexual abuse including against the University of Southern California and at the University of Michigan. We have active cases of alleged sexual abuse on behalf of athletes in the NCAA, students at The Hotchkiss School in Connecticut, and children at Devereux Healthcare nationwide.
