In a sexual assault case against a fitness club, Kristin Olson successfully defeats a motion to strike allegations regarding a prior sexual assault victim at the same club

While representing a victim of sexual assault in a case against fitness facility ClubSport Oregon and its management company, Leisure Sports, Kristin Olson successfully defeated the defendants’ motion to strike allegations regarding a prior victim of sexual assault at the same ClubSport location.  In the lawsuit brought on behalf of her client, Kristin alleged that her client was the victim of sexual assault during a massage at ClubSport Oregon in Tigard.  The lawsuit also alleged that there was a prior sexual assault involving a different victim by a different massage therapist at the same ClubSport Oregon location.  Therefore, Kristin argued, ClubSport Oregon and Leisure Sports knew or should have known that a sexual assault during a massage at that club location was foreseeable and should have changed their protocol to protect future potential victims of sexual assault during a massage, such as Kristin’s client.  ClubSport and Leisure Sports moved to strike those allegations.  Kristin successfully defeated that motion, and the allegations regarding the prior sexual assault remained in the lawsuit.  Freifeld v. Leisure Sports, Inc., et al., Washington County Case No. 18CV12178 (September 10, 2018).
