Lawyers want class-action status for Bradley cases
WILMINGTON, Del. - May 5, 2010 -- Lawyers are seeking class-action status for their cases filed against a Delaware pediatrician charged with raping or sexually abusing more than 100 children dating back to 1998.
The News Journal of Wilmington reports the request was made in a lawsuit filed Monday by three attorneys on behalf of a 12-year-old girl Earl B. Bradley allegedly abused.
Attorney Bruce L. Hudson says if his petition is approved in court he would have to send out notices to the 7,000 patients treated by Bradley in the Lewes and Milford areas. Hudson says he represents about 40 alleged victims.
More lawsuits are expected as Bradley is facing hundreds of counts including rape, sexual exploitation of a child and reckless endangering.
