WB&S Files Sexual Abuse Lawsuit Against Marin School District Over Superintendent’s Misconduct

The attorneys at WB&S represent Janet DB Roe, a district clerk, who is suing the Shoreline Unified School District for alleged negligence in hiring and supervising Robert Raines, the former superintendent convicted of lewd conduct with her child.

The lawsuit, filed on behalf of her son, John JB Roe, contends that the district failed to investigate Raines’ history of sexual misconduct adequately and neglected proper background checks, allowing him to work with children.

“Our children deserve a learning environment free from fear and harm. When a school district fails to thoroughly vet and supervise its employees, especially those in leadership roles, it is a failure not just to the individual involved but to the entire community that relies on the safety of its educational institutions”, said lead plaintiff attorney John Winer.

Roe shared her experience of speaking out against the inappropriate behavior she witnessed with the Point Reyes Light. The article sheds light on the district’s inadequate response to this public safety issue.
