In affirming the verdict, the Connecticut Supreme Court recognized for the first time the duty of an institution to protect a child in its care from sexual abuse.
In John Doe v. Boys and Girls Village, Doug and his partner Cindy Robinson achielved a $1.25 million jury verdict for their client who had been sexually abused by his teacher. Doug and Cindy brought the case against the boy's mental health care provider who despite having reason to know about the abuse, failed to report it to authorites allowing it to continue on.
In Blackwell v. Town of Seymour, Doug served as lead counsel in a case involving a drunk driver resulting in three deaths and an amputation. The jury returned a verdict totalling over $16 million dollars for the four men with over $6 million of the verdict against the Town of Seymour for the failure of its off duty police officer to stop the drunk driver.
