DRZ represented a family against a private day care facility. A teaching aide at the day care center had sexually assaulted the young boy by taking him to rooms without other supervision. DRZ brought suit against the worker and against the day care center for failing to supervise the worker, particularly following prior behavior that put the center on notice. Following a week-long trial, the child received a confidential settlement.
