Sexual Assault Lawsuit Filed Against Ken Cloud and Cloud Roofing
Hill Law Firm has now filed lawsuits on behalf of multiple women alleging they were lured into fake job interviews and assaulted by Ken Cloud, owner of Cloud Roofing. In April of 2020, during the height of the pandemic and after millions of people had lost their job, our clients all responded to ads in Craigslist for a job. When they arrived for their interview, they were met by Mr. Ken Cloud and ushered into a series of rooms. At some point, the job interview was revealed to simply be cover for Cloud to lure women into his office so he could assault or attempt to assault them.
In April of 2020, one victim came forward and that led to the arrest of Mr. Ken Cloud on charges of sexual assault. The special victims unit stated that Mr. Cloud’s actions appeared predatory and they discussed the possibility that there were other victims. So far, three victims have hired us to represent them in their civil claims arising out of almost identical conduct as that which led to Mr. Cloud’s arrest.
Our lawsuits have alleged/allege that Ken Cloud and Cloud Roofing are liable to these victims for the assaults that occurred. Specifically, the lawsuit alleges that Cloud Roofing is responsible for Mr. Cloud’s actions due to his status as a vice-principal of the company at the time the assaults occurred. Second, the lawsuits have alleged/allege that Cloud Roofing ratified Mr. Cloud’s actions by allowing him to continue to bring in women for “interviews” even though, upon information and belief, Cloud Roofing was not hiring and Mr. Cloud did not have a role in hiring administrative staff. Other claims against Ken Cloud and Cloud Roofing include sexual assault, negligence, malice, vicarious liability, and gross negligence. The current lawsuits seek damages to compensate victims for their past and future medical care, past and future mental anguish, past and future pain and suffering and other damages. The case is filed in San Antonio, Bexar County, Texas.
