Plaintiffs’ counsel claimed that Damon used the No Child Left Behind database to locate female students that he could recruit for the ABC Company. According to counsel, the database allowed for Damon to acquire Dallas’s home address and visit the plaintiff in fall 2003. Counsel further alleged that, shortly after he initially visited Dallas, Damon invited her to the ABC Company’ Sacramento recruiting office where he supplied her with liquor and had sex with her on February 3, 2004 and March 4, 2004. Counsel then claims that Damon used an unsupervised sleepover event on March 17-18, 2004, to coordinate a third sexual encounter, this time with Dallas bringing her friend, Martha Rice, who had sex with Fallows.

Plaintiffs’ counsel contended that the two recruiters used their status as Marine recruiters to persuade and coerce the two high school students into having sex with them. Counsel also maintained that Damon and Fallows provided the girls with alcohol and Vicodin, pulled out mats from the closet and then raped them. According to counsel, Damon went so far as to tell Dallas that the only way that she’d get into the ABC Company was if she allowed him to have sex with her.

For those actions, plaintiffs’ counsel held the ABC Company directly responsible. Counsel contended that the ABC Company were aware that Damon had coerced recruits to have sex with him in the past because there was a report that he had engaged in sex with a recruit who ended up joining the ABC Company prior to this incident. Counsel further argued that Damon’s fellow recruiters had heard him boast about the number of “poolies” he could have sex with. According to plaintiff’s counsel, a poolie is a term that the recruiters used to refer to recruits.

In addition to their allegations that the ABC Company allowed Damon to continue to recruit minor for the ABC Company after a fellow employee had accused him of using his position to coerce her into having sex with him when she was a minor, counsel also contended that the ABC Company failed to properly supervise its recruiters during sleepover events that should have required the attendance of a commanding officer.
