  • Lawsuits Against Adult & Childhood Sexual Abusers

    Attorneys S. Michael Musa-Obregon, Karl Ashanti, and Sami El Cherif made history on February 8th, 2024, by obtaining the largest jury verdict in New York State for a child victim of sexual abuse under the NY Child Victims Act. They secured $160 million in compensatory and punitive damages against a New York City high school teacher in the case of Jane Doe v. New York City Board of Education and Mark Waltzer.

    Despite the attorneys for the NYC Department of Education arguing in a motion that the Department of Education should be dismissed from the case, Musa-Obregon created new case law under the Child Victims Act by defeating the City’s motion. The decision was favorable not only for our client but also for future plaintiffs in other cases. By prevailing against the city's summary judgment motion, Musa-Obregon ultimately positioned the case for a very favorable settlement with the City, less than a week before trial.
