Civil Lawsuit Filed in Sexual Assault Case

Pfaff & Gill, Ltd. recently filed a lawsuit on behalf of a young woman who was injured at a Michigan campground when a man entered the showers at the camp and sexually assaulted her. Following the events at the campground, the man was arrested, charged, and later sentenced to a year of prison. The defendants in the lawsuit include the local group that organized and supervised the outing for negligent supervision and for their role in allowing the man to attend the camp. The owner of the campground was also named a defendant for failing to provide proper security and locking devices on the women's showers.

The case is pending in the Circuit Court of Cook County and seeks compensatory damages for the young woman. For more information, please contact Matt Ports at Pfaff & Gill, Ltd.
