John D. Winer nominated as 2019 Top 10 Best Personal Injury Attorneys in California by American Institute of Personal Injury Attorneys

**PRESS RELEASE**

The American Institute of Personal Injury Attorneys has recognized the exceptional performance of California’s Personal Injury Attorney John D. Winer as 2019 10 Best Personal Injury Attorneys for Client Satisfaction.

The American Institute of Personal Injury Attorneys is a third-party attorney rating organization that publishes an annual list of the Top 10 Personal Injury attorneys in each state. Attorneys who are selected to the “10 Best” list must pass AIOPIA’s rigorous selection process, which is based on client and/or peer nominations, thorough research, and AIOPIA’s independent evaluation. AIOPIA’s annual list was created to be used as a resource for clients during the attorney selection process.

One of the most significant aspects of the selection process involves attorneys’ relationships and reputation among his or her clients. As clients should be an attorney’s top priority, AIOPIA places the utmost emphasis on selecting lawyers who have achieved significant success in the field of Personal Injury law without sacrificing the service and support they provide. Selection criteria, therefore, focus on attorneys who demonstrate the highest standards of Client Satisfaction.

We congratulate John D. Winer on this achievement and we are honored to have him as a 2019 AIOPIA Member.

Sexual Harassment at UC Davis Indicative of Entire UC System

A 31-year employee of UC Davis was subjected to a period of sexual harassment by her immediate superior in spite of her speaking up over the incident multiple times and his known past behavior. The woman accuses The UC Board of Regents of turning a blind eye to the perpetrator’s harassing behavior over a period of years. In this case, the woman alleges she was subjected to unwanted touching, unwanted hugging, having her chest area touched and having her privacy violated. The perp was accused of engaging in inappropriate conduct with at least two other female employees at UC Davis and had previously engaged in unwanted conduct of a sexual nature toward female employees at UC Berkeley.

Making matters worse, the perpetrator attempted to sue the UC system and his victim after his eventual firing! He’d tried to switch campuses without disclosing his prior harassing behavior and when he was discovered and fired, he filed a lawsuit. The suit was thrown out of court, but it is one of the most egregious cases of retaliation in this type of case.

John Winer represents several women throughout the state who claim they have been the victims of a pattern of behavior by the school which seeks to protect perpetrators while leaving the victims isolated, exposed and even retaliated against.

The following article by the UC Davis Aggie newspaper highlights the case and the plight of women throughout the UC System.
