Saint John – Estabrooks Class Action filed

by John McKiggan

I have been retained by Robert Hayes to file a proposed class action against the City of Saint John, the Saint John Police Department and the Saint John Police Commission.

For more than 30 years Kenneth Estabrooks preyed on children and youth in Saint John. Persons in authority turned a blind eye, or worse, covered up his sexual activities.

Estabrooks has destroyed hundreds of lives. Tragically some did not survive. Many of his victims have never been able to achieve their full potential because of the harm caused by his abuse. The ripple effects of his assaults have touched spouses, children and other family members of his victims.

Estabrooks can no longer be held accountable for his actions.

But Bobby hayes and the other Estabrooks survivors are taking control of their lives. They are demanding answers and accountability from the institutions and employers that allowed Estabrooks to destroy so many young lives.

For decades Estabrooks victims have suffered in silence. But Hayes is Breaking the Silence He is speaking up on behalf of all the survivors who cannot. I admire and respect his courage.

This class action will allow Estabrooks’ survivors to receive closure and compensation for what happened to them.
