Court Awards $1.5 Million to Abuse Victim

A judge has ordered a former West hartford teacher and school administrator to pay $1.5 million to a former student who says he was repeatedly abused by him in the late 1970s. Apparently it is a default judgment. The Courant article quotes the judge saying "Under Connecticut law, Ronco's failure to address the charges, either in person or through a lawyer, means he is deemed to have admitted to all the essential elements in the claims against him."
