$6 Million Settlement: Consolidated Case Against School District

Michael Delguercio and Matthew Grossman, who are both residents of Atco, filed their lawsuits in Camden County Superior Court in the summer of 2021 over allegations that they were both repeatedly sexually abused as minors from 1998 to 2003. The two men alleged that their abuser was a teacher, Nicholas Zaccaria, and that the abuse took place while they were students at Edgewood Regional High School in the Lower Camden County Regional School District.
