Description: In the 1960s, Teri Lee spent her childhood years in an orphanage in Porter County, Indiana. During that time, an adult houseparent raped her dozens of times. In 1994, Greg Bowes took over her case from another attorney. For the next seven years, Greg pursued the claim through the court system, taking the case all the way to the Indiana Supreme Court. See Doe v. Shults-Lewis Child & Family Services, Inc., 718 N.E.2d 738 (Ind. 1999), found at http://www.state.in.us/judiciary/opinions/archive/10089904.mcs.html. Greg's work resulted in a negotiated settlement that included a public apology.
