A jury awarded a family of a Kansas City, Mo., girl $950,000 in damages for sexual harassment and battery and the court awarded an additional $554,000 in attorneys fees. The plaintiff “D.W.”, who was an 11-year-old at the time, asserted that her middle-school teacher sexually harassed her in the classroom. Brown & Curry brought suit against both the school and the teacher, and the jury award found in favor of the plaintiff on her claims against both defendants. Brown & Curry is proud of D.W. and the courage she showed.
