N.J. shop teacher ordered to pay $1.15M to student who says he was sexually abused

A Union County jury on Tuesday awarded $1.15 million in damages to a man who claimed he was repeatedly sexually abused as a teen by an Elizabeth teacher.

The sum comes after a $600,000 settlement paid in June 2017 by the Elizabeth school district in the same case, for a total of $1.75 million.
