A federal jury Thursday ordered a prominent New Haven rabbi and founder of an Orthodox Jewish school to pay $20 million for sexually abusing a former student.

The eight-person federal jury in Hartford found there was sufficient evidence to find 77-year-old Rabbi Daniel Greer liable on civil counts of assault and battery in addition to negligence and recklessness by the school. In his 15-page lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in May 2016, Eliyahu Mirlis, of New Jersey, detailed more than 100 instances of alleged sexual abuse at the hands of the rabbi.
