Attorney David Eisbrouch is representing a former Bergen Catholic wrestler in a civil lawsuit against Bergen Catholic High School, certain coaches. The wrestling team at Bergen Catholic High School is ranked in the top teams nationally.
Our civil suit holds responsible Bergen Catholic High School, its wrestling Coaches for the harm done to this student and possibly scores of other students. Our suit alleges the Head Coach acted inappropriately, including sending text messages of a predatory and sexual nature, watching students undress in locker rooms and other egregious behavior. Our lawsuit also alleges an assistant coach had previously showed nude images of himself to our client and other students on his mobile phone.
Our client did the right thing by bringing this abuse to the attention of the school's administration, and our client was thrown off the wrestling team, which the school alleges was an unrelated move.
The civil lawsuit filed by our law firm caused the Bergen County Prosecutor's Office to open a criminal probe, which was apparently closed at the end of May. Mr. Eisbrouch intends to pursue all criminal and civil remedies on behalf of his client, and has sent a letter to the Bergen County Prosecutor's Office asking for the investigation into criminal charges be reopened.
