Domina Law Group pc llo's record-establishing emotional distress judgment in District Court of Cuming County, Nebraska, will be heard before the Nebraska Supreme Court during the second week in February. Arguments will be held at the University of Nebraska College of Law.
Domina Law Group pc llo's client was harassed by her older uncle after she disclosed, in adulthood, that he had repeatedly sexually molested her as a child. The harassment came when the molestation was disclosed, as a therapeutic step for the victim.
When the harassment did not stop, the victim contacted Domina Law Group pc llo who demanded the uncle cease from further improprieties. When he did not do so, suit against him was filed.
A record-setting jury verdict, followed by judgment, was entered against the man. He appealed.
The focal point of the uncle's appeal concerns whether the evidence was sufficient to permit the jury to conclude permanent injury had been sustained by the victim. David Domina and Timothy Himes who tried the case expressed "every confidence that our evidence is sufficient."
