Elite R.I. private school and abuse accusers settle

From The Boston Globe-

St. George’s School, reeling after months of allegations of sexual abuse of students, has agreed to what one lawyer called a “very significant” financial settlement with up to 30 alumni, for incidents going as far back as the 1970s.

The settlement, whose terms remain confidential, was announced jointly by school officials and some of the aggrieved former students. It caps a time of tumult at the elite school in Middletown, R.I. The allegations, made by dozens of former students, have led to independent investigations of the school, and to a probe by the Rhode Island State Police. The embattled headmaster, Eric Peterson, announced in June that he won’t seek to renew his contract when it expires next year.
