Client: Vineland Board of Education
Brief Attorney: Jessica M. Anderson, Esq.
Plaintiff, a student, claimed that she was sexually assaulted by a janitor who grabbed her by the shoulder while she was walking down the hallway, hugged her, gave her a kiss, and told her that he loved her. Plaintiff further claimed that on different occasions the same janitor would wait by Plaintiff’s locker and follow her during the day. We filed a motion in lieu of answer for failure to state a claim arguing that Defendant was not liable for the janitor’s intentional acts and Defendant is immune from liability for failure to enforce the law. The court agreed and granted our motion to dismiss Plaintiff’s Complaint.
