Stephen B. Morris APC is a San Diego injury attorney and the principal at Morris and Associates, a local San Diego law firm. Mr. Morris represents clients who have been injured because of the actions of others, including those harmed in car accidents, slip and fall cases and those whose rights have been violated in employment settings. Mr. Morris recently represented a client who was allegedly sexually assaulted in a spa, and he announces that he has settled the California personal injury lawsuit filed on the client's behalf for $100,000.00.
This California personal injury lawsuit was filed in response to an alleged sexual assault that took place at a spa in Southern California. Mr. Morris' client is female and the person who was accused of committing this sexual assault was a male. As part of the settlement that was reached, Mr. Morris has agreed not to publish the names of the parties involved, the location of the alleged sexual assault or the case number that was assigned to this lawsuit. All of those details are to be kept strictly confidential per the agreement of the involved parties.
The case that was filed on behalf of the client who was allegedly sexually assaulted by a male masseur did not include any physical evidence of said alleged assault. Rather, the evidence that related to the case was limited to the testimony of the two people who were in the room when this alleged assault occurred. As a result, the case came down to a measurement of the credibility of those two parties.
In an unusual step, the male masseur asserted his rights under the 5th Amendment of the Constitution at his deposition and declined to answer any questions other than to provide his name. While no inferences can legally be drawn from this at trial, the plaintiff's testimony would not have been directly rebutted by the individual defendant. The masseur who was accused of sexually assaulting Mr. Morris' client and the spa where this assault allegedly occurred agreed to settle the matter for a sum of $100,000.00.
