Torkin Manes' lawyer, Loretta P. Merritt, and Sabrina Lombardi of McKenzie Lake Lawyers, win the precedent setting Grenville Christian College class-action suit. It is the first common issues trial in a class action for historical abuse. 

The now-defunct Grenville Christian College “engaged in systemic negligence” from the early 1970s to the late 1990s and will have to pay yet-to-be-determined damages to the  ex-students.This victory is validation and vindication for people who have suffered for decades as a result of being psychologically abused in childhood at the school.
