Civil Claims

Sayreville High School could face thousands of dollars in civil claims

NJ.com reached out to Raymond Gill of Gill & Chamas for his insight on the events taking place with the football team at Sayreville High School. See below for a portion of the article written by Ted Sherman:

At issue, said personal injury lawyer Raymond Gill of Gill & Chamas in Woodbridge, was the perceived loss of college scholarships and chances to play Division 1 football, now jeopardized by the lost season.

Gill, who said he received a call but opted not to take the case, believed the district did the right thing in forfeiting the rest of the season in light of allegations of possible criminal hazing involving members of the team, now the focus of an investigation by the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s office.

“When allegations arise that go to the level of a first degree crime, the school has an obligation to protect the kids while the investigation goes on, and the preserve evidence,” he said. “But there’s going to be a lot of fallout on this.”

Gill and other legal experts said the district may be facing tens of thousands of dollars in legal claims.

Gill, who has sued several school districts involving hazing incidents, believes Sayreville’s board faces protracted litigation: from students who may have been the victim of hazing; from angry parents such as those who approached him, seeking compensation over the impact the cancelled season might have on college prospects; and even from equipment suppliers, bus companies or sweatshirt manufacturers, for breach of contract.
