    Child sex abuse law defended before Colorado Supreme Court

    Denver Trial Lawyer James Avery represented victim Angelica Saupe f/k/a Angelica Synovic in her case against former Rangeview High School Girls Basketball Coach David James O’Neill Jr. and Aurora Public Schools. The Supreme Court will determine the constitutionality of the SB021-088 (the Child Sex Abuse Accountability Act).

    Update: June 20, 2023.

    The Colorado Supreme Court held the CSAAA to be unconstitutional as to all claims that were time barred before the enactment of the Act (Jan 1, 2022). The law was not struck down in its entirety and still provides a new statutory remedy against perpetrators and managing organizations that did not exist before the Act, for those claims that were not time barred as of Jan 1, 2022. The provisions of the law waiving government immunity also stand (was not decided), as do the limits on damages for claims under the Act.

    Colorado Supreme Court

    A

    A decision is expected before July 1, 2023. Victims of child sexual abuse have a three year window to bring their claims dating back to 1960 against perpetrators and ‘managing organizations’ who were responsible for the children’s safety and welfare where the abuse occurred. Victims can claim up to $1 million damages under the Act and have until January 1, 2025 to file their claim. Contact Denver Injury Law, LLC now to learn if you qualify to bring a claim.

      • Case filed in Boulder County District Court-Boulder, Colorado (Case No. 2022cv30042) on behalf of Brian Coursey (a former student athlete at Broomfield (CO) High School) against Boulder Valley School District and Robert T.

Osborne, an adult, was not reported and not charged at the time of the offense.

      Coursey complained to law enforcement in 1993 and Osborne was found guilty of charges related to sexual assault on a child and sentenced to jail. Coursey has never been contacted by Boulder Valley School District, although he believes the School District was contacted by the Boulder Sheriff Office at the time of his complaint.

                  3          Case filed in Arapahoe County District Court-Centennial, Colorado (Case No. 2022cv30065) on behalf of Angelica Saupe (a retired Colorado 911 dispatcher) against Aurora Public Schools and David James O’Neill Jr (a former Rangeview High School basketball/softball coach, Fellowship of Christian Athletes leader, and campus monitor).

                  4.         Case filed in Douglas County District Court-Castle Rock, Colorado (Case No. 2021cv31001) on behalf of Emily Stanton (a Colorado nurse) against Highlands Ranch Community AssociationMatt Muller (HRCA Supervisor) and William Fearing (a former Highlands Ranch Community Association racquetball program director and coach of youth leagues).

      Plaintiff Emily Stanton, age 24, claims that she was sexually abused as a minor (ages 15-17) for years (2011-2013) by Defendant William Fearing, age 74, person in a position of trust as her racquetball coach, at Highlands Ranch Community Association’s Northridge Community Center. Fearing was supervised by Defendant Matt Muller, who was warned by another coach (an adult female) that the relationship between Fearing and his minor girl assistants (including Emily Stanton, age 14) was suspicious. William Fearing, then age 66, was not reported and not charged at the time of the offense. Stanton complained to law enforcement in 2018, at age 22, and Fearing was charged with and convicted of sex assault against a minor by a person in a position of trust and pattern of abuse. Fearing, who was sentenced to 6 years jail time in May 2019 by a Douglas County judge, is serving time in evenings at Douglas County community corrections, and is already eligible for parole.

                  5.         Case filed in Boulder County District Court-Boulder, Colorado (Case No. 2022cv30001) on behalf of Kate McPhee (a Vermont artist) against John Kelly (a prominent Aspen, CO photographer and former Colorado Academy teacher), Albert Brown (member of the iconic Brown family that helped establish Aspen Skiing Company),Darcey Brown (former teacher at Colorado Academy now residing in Moab, UT and member of the iconic Brown family), Bruce Cranmer (a Boulder resident and former C.U. Nordic Ski Coach), Alan CranmerJeanie Cranmer Clark and Mark Clark.

      The lawsuit alleges that claimant Kate McPhee, age 15, was raped on the campus of Denver prep school Colorado Academy (CA) by one of its teachers, John Kelly (a history teacher at CA) then serially raped over the course of 3 weeks in the summer of 1977 on a Grand Canyon River trip supervised by the other adults. McPhee alleges a pattern of grooming and sexual misconduct by persons in a position of trust. She claims that alcohol and illicit drugs were provided to her and another teenage girl by the adults on the river trip, then she was serially raped by Kelly with the knowledge and consent of the other adult chaperones. The matter was never reported to police by the adults and only recently investigated by Colorado Academy after McPhee answered an open letter by CA seeking other victims who were abused by another of its teachers.

      The newly enacted law (SB021-088), effective Jan 1, 2022, creates a new cause of action effectively setting aside time limits in cases going back to 1960. Victims have 3 years (until Jan. 1, 2025) to file previously time barred claims the new law.

      The lawsuit seeks an unspecified amount of damages.  Damages under the new law, C.R.S. 13-20-1201, are capped at $500,000 or $1,000,000 depending on the knowledge of the organization, $424,000 or $1,195,000 against public entities.  

      Denver trial lawyer James Avery comment on the new law:  “This is an unprecedented opportunity for justice where it is truly needed.  I have turned away dozens of clients who were sexually abused as children but who didn’t come forward in time to file a case.  This new law gives them a remedy, albeit a limited one.  These victims invariably suffer for a lifetime and the abuse effects their families, their jobs, their social relationships, virtually every aspect of their lives.  To have this new tool in the arsenal to help them is a big step forward for society at large.   For the defendants in these heinous cases, its a day of reckoning.” [end]

      Colorado Candor Act

      The 2019 Colorado Candor Act, C.R.S. 25-51-101, creates a mechanism for the possible resolution of medical malpractice claims which allows the physician or other provider (including service corporations and hospitals) to avoid reporting the claim to the Medical Board. Since the Medical Board is statutorily obligated to review all medical malpractice settlements for possible disciplinary action, the Act seeks to create a mechanism for resolving claims in a ‘risk free’ manner for physicians/providers.

      There are some key components to the Candor Act that patients should be aware of. First, the decision to utilize or invoke the procedures of the Act are unilateral, in the sole discretion of the physician or provider, not in response to a demand or claim initiated by the patient. The patient will receive a written notice from the physician or provider, within 180 days of the date of the date they acquired knowledge of the ‘adverse incident’ or injury resulting occurrence.

      If you receive a notice from a physician or provider, it will state that you have a right to have an attorney represent you. The benefits of an attorney are the same as if you were involved in a medical malpractice case. The experienced attorney will be able to ascertain the true value of your injury and advise you or the relative merits of accepting the provider’s offer (if one is conveyed during the process) versus pursuing other actions like complaints to the medical board or filing a claim or lawsuit.
