INJURIES: The two plaintiffs suffered from emotional distress and shame at having been coerced into believing that they needed to have sex with the recruiters in order to gain entrance into the ABC Company. Counsel further argued that Dallas lost her virginity to Damon while she was intoxicated at the recruiting office and that Damon had infected her with Chlamydia. According to counsel, when Dallas told Damon that he had given her the disease, Damon responded by exclaiming, “I should have used a condom with your dirty ass.”

In the fall of 2003, plaintiff Jane Dallas, a Sacramento high school student, was contacted by an ABC Company recruiter, Phil Damon, about the potential for her to embark on a career in the ABC Company. By the end of January 2004, the two would have sex on three occasions. On the last occasion, Dallas was accompanied by her friend, Martha Rice, who claimed that she had sex with Damon’s fellow recruiter, Ben Fallows at the Sacramento recruiting office.
