Another two women reportedly plan to sue Doral Golf Resort & Spa for Miami personal injury. They claim that they too were sexually assaulted by employees will receiving spa treatments at the luxury facility. Already, two women have filed their Florida sexual assault lawsuits.
One spa worker, David Muñoz, has already been charged with one count of sexual battery for allegedly assaulting a woman during a massage. Another masseur, John J. Pacheco, is also accused of sexual assault. The victim that named him told CBS4 that the experience was a “a devastating nightmare.”
Sexual assault is a crime and can also be grounds for a Miami personal injury case against the assailant and other related parties. For instance, another woman has filed a Broward County personal injury case against Henderson Mental Health Center because she claims that her counselor threatened to take her son away from her if she didn’t have sex with him.
Per her Florida injury complaint, the woman joined a mental health program after a judge made her participation a requirement if she wanted to retain custody of her son. However, rather than providing counseling to the woman, Mervin Span, a Henderson Mental Health Center, employe allegedly “demanded” that she give him sexual favors or he would “remove her son from her home.” Jane Doe No. 1’s attorney says that Herman touched his client inappropriately, performed oral sex on her against her will, and raped her on more than one occasion without using a condom. Doe at one point tried to commit suicide.
She is seeking over $5 million. Doe blames the mental health center for the sexual abuse because Henderson allegedly was aware that Span was a “sexual opportunist” who was a “risk to females.”
