A team of firm attorneys secured a $100 million plaintiff’s judgment on behalf of a man who said he was abused throughout childhood by his Boy Scout leader.
“It will go down as one of the biggest individual sexual abuse verdicts in the country, but it should,” said Randall Rhodes to KCUR. “John Doe was sexually abused about 2,000 times over a period of five years. He was beat, he was strangled, he was threatened, his family was threatened.”
The bench trial occurred in the 16th Circuit Court of Jackson County, Mo. The court awarded the plaintiff $25 million in compensatory damages and $75 million in punitive damages.
