HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -
A federal judge on Monday approved a $5.75 million settlement over allegations of sexual abuse at the Hawaii Center for the Deaf and Blind.
The ruling by U.S. Magistrate Judge Kevin Chang paves the way for victims to file claims and eventually receive payment.
The class action lawsuit alleged that for more than 10 years, students routinely attacked younger and smaller students, assaulting, robbing, and even gang raping them on a regular basis while school administrators did nothing.
Chang also approved $900,000 in legal fees to three law firms that sued the state.
