Military Sexual Assault Lawsuit
A new lawsuit was filed in the US District Court in Washington, DC on March 6, 2012, behalf of eight current and former members of the Navy and Marine Corps. The lawsuit, filed by Susan L. Burke on behalf of the plaintiffs, charges that the
“laws designed to reduce rape, sexual assault and harassment in the Navy and Marine Corps directly and seriously harmed Plaintiffs and others who have reported rape and sexual assault and have challenged sexual harassment. Rather than being respected and appreciated for reporting crimes and unprofessional conduct, Plaintiffs and others who report are branded ‘troublemakers,’ endure egregious and blatant retaliation, and are often forced out of military service.”
The office of Burke PLLC is continuing their work on behalf of soldiers and officers who were raped while on active duty. If you were raped or assaulted, and are interested in representation, please contact the Burke PLLC office paralegal, Miranda Petersen at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
A copy of the complaint is available from the links below thanks to the staff of Burke PLLC.
