Were You a Victim of Childhood Sexual Abuse by Eric Uller of the Police Activities League (PAL)?

Our Legal Team Has Years of Experience Securing Justice for Clients

Were you a victim of childhood sexual abuse by Eric Uller of the Police Activities League (PAL)? PAL is an after school organization run by the city of Santa Monica. Eric Uller, a volunteer with PAL, sexually assaulted over 100 teenage boys during his time with the organization.

The abuse began in 1986 and involved boys ranging in age from 12 years old to 18 years old. Uller used his position as a volunteer at the Santa Monica Police Activities League to gain access to, groom, and abuse the boys. One employee with PAL attempted to sound the alarm about what Uller was doing back in 1993. However, her concerns were unfortunately not taken seriously. Whether other PAL employees and volunteers raised concerns as well is unclear.

Eventually, Uller’s victims began to speak out. This led to the City of Santa Monica settling with a few of the victims for failing to protect them from Uller’s abuse. However, it is believed that there are many more victims who have yet to come forward. Most of the victims lived in Santa Monica at the time and many of them are now in their 50s.

Unfortunately, because of how long ago the abuse happened, time is running out for any of Uller’s remaining victims to hold those at fault for their abuse accountable. In 2019, Assembly Bill 218 was enacted. Even if the abuse occurred years ago, this bill gives victims until the end of this year to file a sexual abuse lawsuit.
