No victim is responsible for their perpetrator's actions, yet the Moraga school district and three other defendants claim Cunnane "was herself responsible for the acts and damages of which she claims."
This is not only absolutely impossible, it is offensive, invalidating, and sets an awful precedent. Cunnane was 12-13 years old when these assaults occurred, making her both below the age of consent and child. The defendants and their attorney Louis Leone claim that a child is responsible for the actions of her adult perpetrator, who was in a position of power over her as a teacher.
It is unacceptable for this to happen, and we call for a formal apology presented to Kristen Cunnane on behalf of the Moraga school district and their attorney for issuing this appalling statement.
