R.R. v. State of Washington DSHS – $3,000,000 Settlement

About the case

Our client, R.R., has settled for $3,000,000 with DSHS for years of repeated rape and child sexual abuse at the hands of her abuser, the father of her 2 children. CPS had many chances to intervene in her horror story, but neglected to follow their own procedures.

Even after her abuser kidnapped her during CPS’ involvement, the agency failed to contact law enforcement or otherwise take action. As a result, she was raped and abused for over a decade while living in hiding throughout Idaho and Utah.
