NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — Jury selection is set to begin in the case of a 20-year-old Connecticut woman suing several men on allegations they sexually assaulted her in 2009 when they were all middle school students in Madison.
Jury selection for the civil trial is scheduled to start Monday in New Haven Superior Court.
The woman sued seven defendants and their parents, claiming several boys inappropriately touched her at a New Year’s Eve party at one of the boys’ homes when she was intoxicated. She was 13 at the time. She accused the parents of being responsible for their children’s conduct.
Six men and parents of three of them remain defendants after settlements in the case.
Several of the men were arrested on criminal charges as teenagers and served probation and community service.
