Rasim, Administrator v. Town of West Haven (Filed in Federal Court-Connecticut, 2010)

Shengyal Rasim was raising her two young children in West Haven. She was Turkish by birth and was separated from her spouse who had a history of abuse. On the evening in question, she called the West Haven police after her husband called and said he was going to kill her. The police went to her home,a nd finding nothing they left. Later that night, the dispatcher received two more calls. The first was from a co-worker of the husband who said that the husband had just left the business, that he had a gun and said he was going to kill his wife. The second was from the Shengyal who reported that the husband was at her front door, and she needed help. The dispatcher ridiculed Shengyal’s accent, and failed to send police to the scene. The husband broke through the door and killed Shengyal, and then himself. The two children witnessed the aftermath and were left orphaned.

How to Use Case Builder

Case Builder contains two helpful categories: cases we are working on now and our past results. Case Builder is a novel concept. Our web designer said we should have this information fixed in a web page. We disagreed—thinking that just like our practice is always changing the case builder should be an ever-changing description of where we are right now—not last month or a year ago.
