Students all over the country are coming together to protest the genocide of Palestinian people. Students set up encampments on college campuses to show their solidarity with Palestine. These demonstrations started peacefully, but many of them ended after encampments were attacked by counter protesters. In some of these protests, conditions quickly got out of hand because of a lack of security provided by the university. Unfortunately, many students were harmed during these demonstrations.

Sexual Assault and Resulting Injuries

Sexual assault can look very different from case to case. This is because the term “sexual assault” is an umbrella term that covers many different types of sexual misconduct. Examples of sexual abuse can include the following: rape, attempted rape, sodomy, any unwanted touching, fondling, groping, penetration with objects, forcing the victim to touch the attacker or perform any sexual acts to the attacker, making sexually explicit jokes/comments, showing the victim explicit images/videos, etc.

Sexual assault can have lasting physical, mental, and emotional effects on victims. Victims may suffer from the following harm:

  • Unwanted pregnancies
  • Complications related to pregnancy
  • Sexually transmitted infections
  • Injuries to genitals
  • Injuries to reproductive organs
  • Fractures, lacerations, and other injuries resulting from the use of force or a struggle
  • Mental and emotional harm: post-traumatic stress, depression, anxiety, panic, fear, etc.
  • Increased risk of substance abuse and self-harm
Can I File a Lawsuit for Sexual Assault During a Protest at a UCLA Encampment?

Yes, you could file a lawsuit for the sexual assault that you suffered while you were protesting at UCLA or any other university campus. Many people believe that that they do not have the right to take any legal action if they are harmed while they are out protesting; some may argue that people know that protests can get violent and result in injuries. Based on the details surrounding the incident that caused your injuries, you could have the right to sue – even if you were out protesting.

The question now is who you can sue. Who is liable for injuries suffered during a protest? The answer to this question will vary based on the details surrounding the claim. Consider some of the following parties/entities that could be liable and sued:

  • The protest organizer – for incidents due to the organizer’s inciting, directing, or ordering of violence.
  • The attacker – for any intentional acts.
  • The government entity – for incidents that occurred due to the government entity’s negligence (a lack of security, a lack of surveillance, poor maintenance, etc.).
  • The property owner – for incidents that occurred due to the property owner’s negligence (a lack of security, a lack of surveillance, poor maintenance, etc.).
  • The law enforcement agencies or security companies – for incidents caused by the use of excessive force, inaction, or any negligence.

In summary, if you were sexually assaulted while you were protesting and staying at a UCLA encampment, you could be eligible to file a lawsuit.

Can I Sue the University? Yes, if you were sexually assaulted at a UCLA encampment due to the hazardous conditions in the university or their failure to protect protestors (such as failing to have adequate security, failing to contact law enforcement, etc.). In some cases, local law enforcement could also be liable and both the university and the law enforcement agency could be sued.
