K.L. v. State of New Jersey: Sexual Abuse of a Minor
In this civil case against the State of New Jersey, Mr. Rickards, along with co-counsel Yan Rudikh, Esq. and Zlata Rudikh, Esq., represented the fifteen-year-old child victim of a former female counselor at a Bergen County Special Services district school. For a period of one and one-half years, K.L. — a minor and special needs student — was sexually abused by the former school counselor both at school and at the therapist’s home. The assistant prosecutor assigned to the counselor’s criminal case stated that “she used her position to manipulate” her victim.
On K.L’s behalf, Mr. Rickards and Rudikh & Associates, are suing the State of New Jersey as a result of the negligence of its former employee, and they are seeking a large monetary payment to compensate for some of the damages.
