In this case an intruder entered Mr. DiFranco’s client’s apartment allegedly with a master key. There was a struggle with the intruder in the victim’s bedroom as he fondled her, tried to take off her clothing, pulled her hair, and punched her. The victim’s roommate heard her scream, ran into the room, and the assailant then fled. Mr. DiFranco’s client suffered facial injuries, post traumatic stress disorder, and major depression disorder. Mr. DiFranco’s investigation disclosed that despite the fact that the intruder worked for the landlord defendant’s, and that there were seven prior incidents of someone using a master key to access apartments, the landlords did not change the locks or collect the outstanding master keys. Mr. DiFranco’s efforts on his client’s behalf resulted in a 1.5 million dollar jury verdict for his client.
