RECENt Settlement WON


K.C. et al v. Snohomish County

Snohomish County Parks failed to put into place protective measures and enforce existing park rules to secure the safety of attendees at a summer movie night in the park. In the absence of protective measures, the 15-year-old girl was given alcohol and drugs by an older male predator who then sexually assaulted her during the movie night.


The young girl and her mother brought suit to shine a light on the County’s failures, and force the County to make policy and staffing changes to ensure the protection of all attendees at movie nights. The Parks Director was made aware of the young girl’s intoxicated condition and the presence of the male predator but proceeded to leave the minor unaccompanied while she waited for her mother to pick her up. This is when the assault took place.

This incident led to the fight for civil justice and to make-right Snohomish County’s failure to have in place appropriate security staff, or off-duty law enforcement, to ensure the safety of all attendees at the event.
