Dallas trial lawyer Brent Walker of Aldous Walker LLP discusses some of the lessons learned from the $9.3 million verdict against the Episcopal School of Dallas.

Brent Walker: What I hope that we accomplished, and I think we did accomplish, is that schools can't just turn a blind eye to this happening in their schools. You can't just say that "Oh, it's a bad teacher, it's the teacher's fault, and we have no responsiblity here."
It signals to the school two things:
1. You can be held responsible if your teachers are acting poorly. So you better make sure that you are monitoring your teachers and that you have policies in place so they don't communicate to students improperly.
2. Beyond that, if it does occur, you need to take the victim, the student, and embrace them, letting them know that they are not at fault.
