Judge Rotenberg Center
More than 223,000 people signed the petition demanding state lawmakers ban the practice at the Canton school.
A Brooklyn family sued the Judge Rotenberg Center for malpractice, for using shock therapy on their son.
Attorneys for a special needs school in Canton began cross-examination Thursday of an expert witness in a lawsuit over shock therapy treatments.
The public is getting its first look at the shock therapy that goes on at the Judge Rotenberg Center. The mother of a disabled man is suing the treatment center over what she calls “torture.”
The lawyer for a special needs school that uses controversial skin shock therapy says a plan by Gov. Deval Patrick’s administration to ban the practice for future students would violate a longstanding court order.
