Jane Doe v. Casey Family Services (Filed 2012 in Bridgeport, CT) The defendant became Jane Doe’s guardian in 1980 when she was 6 years old. They placed her with a family in Stratford, CT. The foster family immediately showed signs of severe dysfunction including repeated arrests of the foster father for drunkenness. The foster parents also had an older son (17) who began to regularly sexually abuse the plaintiff who was only 10 years old when the abuse started. Casey Family Services was told of the problems within the home, and was even notified of the sexual abuse when the plaintiff was 12 years old. Nonetheless, Casey continued to keep the plaintiff in the home until she tried to commit suicide at age 15. Only then did they remove her from the environment. By that time, the plaintiff was badly damaged, and remains significantly impaired and impacted today. This case is brought under the state statute that allows claims involving sexual abuse to be brought within 30 years of the plaintiff turning 18 years old. It is very typical for plaintiffs to never come forward, or to come forward in their 30s and 40s.

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.
