FINANCIAL EXPLOITATION OF A MINOR


          Nicholas v. Fleet Bank of Maine          Kennebec County Superior Court          Augusta, Maine

     Plaintiff Nicholas brought suit against the Defendant institution which had improperly dispensed funds held in a trust account.  These funds were the result of the Plaintiff’s settlement of a sexual abuse claim against a former FBI agent. Dr. Robinson's expert testimony described the Plaintiff's trauma secondary to this institutional "betrayal" and differentiated these effects from those emanating from the betrayal suffered as a result of sexual abuse, early childhood trauma, and the Plaintiff’s relationship with her mother who was found guilty of criminal conduct in an action arising from these same circumstances. 

                              Plaintiff's Attorney:

                              Eric Mehnert, Esq.                              Augusta, Maine                              (207) 623-1455
