Court Case: Hoffman et al. v. Panetta et al

Case Adopted 10/12

Case History

This is a military sexual assault case filed by 19 plaintiffs in the Army and Air force who were sexually assaulted or raped while on active duty by other service members. Like the plaintiffs in the cases Cioca and Klay, which AAUW also supports, the plaintiffs in this case are represented by the law office of Susan Burke.

The case was filed on September 28, 2012, in the Northern District of California (Case No. C12 05049 DMR). AAUW Board Member Kathleen Cha spoke at a press event later that day on behalf of AAUW and several local AAUW members attended.
