Sexual Assault Lawsuit Filed Against Ken Cloud and Cloud Roofing
We recently filed a lawsuit on behalf of a woman alleging she was lured into a fake job interview 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 client responded to an ad in Craigslist for a job. When she arrived for her interview, she was met by Mr. Ken Cloud and ushered into a series of rooms. At some point, it became apparent that the job interview was just cover 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. One of the other victims hired us to represent her in her civil claims arising out of almost identical conduct as that which led to Mr. Cloud’s arrest.
Our lawsuit alleges that Ken Cloud and Cloud Roofing are liable to SA for the assault 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 assault occurred. Second, the lawsuit alleges 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. SA is seeking damages to compensate her for her 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.
