A National Law Firm for Victims of Sexual Abuse, Handling cases across the Country

Herman Law has attorneys who are admitted in NY, FL and the California bar (see lawyer bios ). This allows the Herman Law attorneys, if they are not already admitted to the court, to apply to appear as attorneys of record in all 50 States of the United States and Puerto Rico, as well as all Federal District Courts, by requesting that the judge presiding over a case permit them to appear Pro Hac Vice (“for this occasion only”).

Often we do this in association with a knowledgeable local attorney in that jurisdiction who provides insight into local legal custom and practice and assists in the logistics for matters in that jurisdiction.

New Sex Abuse Lawsuit Filed Against Blackplanet.com

Woman: It’s about to start.

Jeff: Did you put that…

Woman: WYNB [SP] Radio.

Women: Press conference about to start.

Women: Okay, hold on.

Jeff: [inaudible 00:00:10] Okay. Good afternoon, my name is Jeff Herman, J-E-F-F H-E-R-M-A-N, with the law firm Herman, Mermelstein & Horowitz, and I’m here today to announce the filing of a lawsuit against a website called blackplanet.com, their parent companies as well as against a couple individuals by the guy name of Emerson Callum and Lavont Flanders. Callum also goes by the pseudonym Jah-T.

The allegations in this case are really, really disturbing. According to my client as alleged in this lawsuit she had become a member of blackplanet.com and posted some modeling photos of herself. She was contacted by a woman, she believed to be a woman, who claimed to be a talent scout. This woman offered her an audition in south Florida for a Bacardi commercial.

My client, thinking it’s a woman, and began to trust this woman, and gave her her phone number so she could be contacted for the commercial. Eventually, my client came to south Florida and went on what she thought was a rehearsal for an audition. She was given three shots of alcohol to drink. Unbeknownst to her, the alcohol was laced with drugs we believe with Xanax or some sort of combination of a date-rape drug, and once drugged my client was raped and video taped during the rape. She was not even aware that this happened because the drug had blocked her memories.
