Disabled Adult To Supreme Court with Charitable Immnunity Challenge

Comments Off

A disabled adult from Prince William County, Virginia will take the dismissal of his lawsuit against Didlake, Inc. the Virginia Supreme Court.

Juan Jimenez, who is severely disabled from seizures suffered as an infant, alleged that he was injured while in the care of Didlake, Inc. an organization devoted to caring for and employing disabled adults. When his guardian filed suit on his behalf, claiming Jimenez’s leg was broken while in the care of Didlake employees, Didlake moved to dismiss the lawsuit, claiming that it was an charitable organization entitled to full immunity.

After a hearing the court agreed and dismissed the lawsuit.
