Sandusky Trial Example of Negligent Hiring and Retention of Employees Who Pose A Risk

One Sandusky victim set to file civil lawsuit –

As the first (of probably many victims) files the initial civil claim against Penn State University (see story link above), this is a stark reminder of what can happen when an employer fails to properly report or investigate claims of assault and battery and sexual abuse in the workplace.  From Religious institutions tranferring priests with known sexual assautl allegations to the Jerry Sandusky's of the world, this happens more often than it should (which is never).  If you or someone you know has been assaulted in a school, church or employment workplace and there is evidence that the employer knew or should have known about the molestor's propensity to engage in these acts from prior criminal convictions, prior instances of assault and battery or other means, then you should consult with the attorneys of Glotzer & Sweat, LLP (Los Angeles and California legal team based in Beverly Hills, CA and with offices in West Covina, Ontario, Palmdale/Lancaster, Long Beach, Orange County, San Diego, and the Bay Area).  We have a long and succesful track record of handling these types of claims.
