Liberty Law is pleased to announce that Micha Star Liberty is one of this year’s finalists for the Consumer Attorneys of California’s Street Fighter of the Year award. The winner will be announced on November 7.
Ms. Liberty was nominated in connection with her work in protecting special needs students from sexual assault. She sued a school district on behalf of a 14 year old special needs student who was sexually assaulted by another special needs student in a high school bathroom. Ms. Liberty was able to show that the school district knew the student was susceptible to sexual assault, and that the district knew of two prior instances of on-campus sexual assault involving the perpetrator, but the school district failed to properly protect the student.
Ms. Liberty is honored to be nominated for the award.
