A Win for Disabled Individuals

On Monday, the Minnesota Court of Appeals decided that Michael Sorenson, a disabled resident of a group home, could sue his former group home operator. In 2013, when his caretaker stepped away, a roommate poured boiling water over Mr. Sorenson's head. Mr. Sorenson sued for damages related to the injuries, as he suffered severe burns to 35% of his body. Options Residential, Inc., the group home operator, claimed it was immune from the lawsuit under the Minnesota Commitment and Treatment Act. The Court of Appeals disagreed, concluding that Options Residential, Inc. could be held accountable for the neglect.
