Sexual Assault – K.T. v. Denis Vranich, Elixir and Paradise lane Developments

A case in which the defendant, Vranich sexually assaulted a young employee of his nightclub, Elixir. Vranich had used his financial control over her as an employer to isolate her from her peers and block any path of escape while he sexually violated her. Vranich was found liable and Elixir vicariously liable for the conduct of Vranich. There was no liability found with respect to Paradise Lane Developments.

The Judge awarded the Plaintiff (represented by Hooper Law) $125,000 for pain and suffering, $25,000 for punitive damages, $75,000 for loss of earning capacity, $26,000 for future therapy costs and $48,753 for legal costs. The judgment stands out because the award for pain and suffering is among the highest level in Ontario. Also, punitive damages being awarded against the corporation (who were vicariously liable) is a first in Ontario.
