Nursing Home Sued After Allegations of Sexual Assault by Employee

A 63-year-old woman filed a lawsuit this week after an incident in February 2009. The woman, who suffers from expressive aphasia, a condition that limits her ability to speak or communicate, has alleged that an employe at her nursing home sexually assaulted her. The employee was found not guilty last year in District Court of the sexual assault after a two-day trial.

According to the attorney for the woman, the man who allegedly assaulted her was here illegally, yet he was licensed, he was hired and he was supervised. The complaint alleges nursing home negligence, breach of contract, violation of state regulations and Consumer Protection Act violations. For more, read the story.
