    Confidential Settlement – Woman raped in car in school parking lot

    John Leighton represented a woman who was attending trade school at night.  When she went to her car in the parking lot, she was grabbed, pushed into the car, and sexually assaulted.  Mr. Leighton obtained a confidential settlement for the client.

    Schools require reasonable security to protect their students, regardless of their age.  This is especially true at night, when more crime takes place and there are fewer eyes watching out.  This case presented an example of how a complete lack of security resulted in a sexual assault of a student.

    Mr. Leighton is the author of the leading text on handling negligent security cases, Litigating Premises Security Cases and is the past President of the National Crime Victim Bar Association. Leighton Panoff Law continues to bring meritorious cases on behalf of survivors of sexual assault and sexual abuse.
