The local community has been stunned after learning that alleged sexual abuse occurred at the elite Ojai, CA, private school. Thacher School, California’s oldest boarding school, was founded in 1889 by Sherman Day Thacher, remaining one of the state’s most prestigious private institutions. The all-boys boarding school began accepting girls in 1977.

The lavish 427-acre campus overlooks picturesque Ojai Valley in Ventura County, less than 30 miles east of Santa Barbara. Parents pay more than $64,000 a year for their children to attend the Ojai boarding academy.

An intentional tort occurs when someone wrongfully and purposefully acts and that causes harm to another. They do not necessarily need to intend to cause the eventual outcome for an intentional tort claim to be valid but they need to intend to commit the wrongful act according to most intentional tort cases and civil law doctrine.

The consequences of intentional torts and the intentional infliction of harm can be severe and include bodily harm, emotional distress, real property destruction, harmful contact, offensive contact, personal property loss, and other serious side effects.

Frequent examples of an intentional tort are intentional infliction of emotional distress, false imprisonment, harmful or offensive contact (i.e. battery), trespass onto someone else’s property, attempted battery or assault), offensive touching like abuse, and if fraud occurs.
