A day camp has delivered after-school and summer camp programs to children ages 3-12 in Los Angeles for more than 30 years. The camp operates after-school programs at nine locations and summer camps at four locations.
During a field trip to the beach, one of the camp's campers was touched inappropriately by a male beachgoer who entered the unlocked bathroom stall occupied by the camper. The incident lasted less than 30 seconds. The young female camper and her parents alleged that the camp's counselors failed to properly supervise the camper.
Taylor | Anderson made a pre-trial CCP 998 Offer to Compromise in the amount of $100,000. At trial, plaintiffs asked for $2 million. Although the jury found the camp negligent, it awarded the plaintiffs only $35,000, which meant the plaintiffs had to pay the camp’s costs.
