Jane Doe v. School Board of Broward County

Herman Law successfully argued that federal law provides a remedy for a young child when a principal and school board fail to adequately respond to allegations that a teacher committed sexual misconduct and that teacher later rapes a student. In a landmark decision, a federal appellate court agreed and reinstated the child’s case, which the lower court judge previously dismissed, setting the standard in Florida for Title IX sexual abuse lawsuits against public schools.
