Male student sexually assaulted by another male student awarded \$1.4 million against Boys and Girls Club. Orange County, CA – Jury Verdict Alert

Jury Verdict Alert is a news service for civil verdicts awarded in the state and federal courts of California.

Steven M. Sweat‘s insight:

The offer of settlement in this case was a mere $60,000.  It would appear that the defense counsel grossly miscalculated the potential for an award on this case.  Unfortunately, this is not uncommon in sexual assault claims.  Because the majority of damages in these cases stem from emotional distress, it is sometimes difficult to assess what a jury may award.  I am glad to see a lot of these seven figure verdicts coming down on these cases here in Southern California as this will, hopefully, increase the values placed upon these claims in the future.
