Summary

Earlier this year, the Washington State Supreme Court issued a 9-0 decision in W.H. v. Olympia Sch. Dist. agreeing with WSAJ Eagles Darrell Cochran and Chris Love that school districts are strictly liable under the Washington Law Against Discrimination for employees’ sexual abuse of students as a form of gender-based discrimination in a place of public accommodation. Join Chris as he discusses the Court’s opinion in W.H., issues left unresolved in the opinion, emerging issues and trends in WLAD public accommodation discrimination claims, and practice tips for a post-W.H. world.
