Girl Doe attorneys file for continuance

Attorneys for the family who alleged their daughter was molested while at Miller-Driscoll School, and are suing the town and Board of Education, have requested a continuance in the lawsuit. The family claims the girl, referred to in court documents as Girl Doe, while in preschool at Miller-Driscoll, was molested by former paraprofessional Eric Von Kohorn, who has been incarcerated on child pornography charges.

A trial management conference is scheduled for Oct. 18, with jury selection on Nov. 1. The continuance was requested because a decision on the town’s motion to dismiss the case has not yet been ruled upon.

“If the motion is denied, the parties may wish to explore settlement as an alternative to trial,” the request says. The request was filed Oct. 3 with Stamford Superior Court.
