Todd Mathews Discusses IL Abuse Cases on WJPF Newsradio

“Rough stuff”: BG partner Todd Mathews joined WJPF newsradio this morning to discuss our landmark Illinois sex abuse case filed earlier this month on behalf of 95 individuals who suffered sexual abuse as juveniles in juvenile detention facilities across Illinois. In this insightful interview, Todd discusses the status of the case, how more cases are going to be filed, and how many survivors have reported the same kind of abuse by the same people, even when in detention facilities at completely different times. Todd also discusses how a goal is to work with the state to get victims justice for the harms suffered (including treatment and therapy as necessary), and how our clients – all brave survivors who have stepped forward – want this kind of abuse stopped so that no one else has to suffer as they have.

Partner Todd Mathews on the Mass Tort News Legalcast

In the most recent episode of the Mass Tort News Legalcast, Bailey Glasser partner Todd Mathews discusses how the firm is helping survivors of sexual abuse at the hands of the State of Maryland acting through the Department of Juvenile Services and its predecessors find closure, healing, and accountability.

The discussion also touches on other states’ approaches to addressing child abuse cases, with some implementing limited windows of opportunity for survivors to file claims. Todd points out the challenges of addressing these cases, especially the need for a sensitive and compassionate approach, avoiding the re-traumatization of survivors.

Switching gears, the conversation touches on recent developments in the legal field, particularly in relation to Johnson & Johnson (J&J) and its potential third bankruptcy filing. Todd expresses his concern and disapproval of such actions, which he views as an abuse of the bankruptcy process to delay compensating victims further. He also addresses the viability of the Camp Lejeune docket, highlighting how recent issues with case attrition and unethical practices in the legal field can impact its resolution.

Partner Todd Mathews Visits “The Leverage Report” Podcast

Todd Mathews, Bailey Glasser mass torts partner, is featured on The Leverage Report podcast where he discusses his commitment to justice, “do no harm,” and being inspired by “The Blind Side,” with program host Susan Barfield.

Todd also discusses the firm’s recently filed sexual abuse cases against the State of Maryland on behalf of former minors who were horrifically abused while institutionalized in the juvenile hall system. In one highlight from the program, Todd states:

“We hope that with the position of the Attorney General, which I read to you earlier, along with the law that has changed, we hope that we can find some sort of a global solution for these survivors. The last thing I really want to do is subject these survivors to depositions and trial and all of the public scrutiny that, quite frankly, they don’t deserve. So we are in contact with the Attorney General’s office. We were before we even filed suit. And we believe we’re going to have a very productive interaction. And moving forward, I think we’re going to try and find a… I’m hopeful that they’ll continue to try and pursue justice with us on these cases.”

BG Partners Join Opening Arguments Podcast Discussing $5 Million Award Against “My Pillow” Founder

Bailey Glasser partners Brian Glasser and Cary Joshi join the Opening Arguments podcast to discuss winning a $5 million arbitration award against My Pillow founder Mike Lindell for claims related to election fraud data.

The Bailey Glasser team, Brian Glasser, Cari Joshi, and paralegal Manuel Rios in Washington, D.C., and partner Lori Bullock in Des Moines, Iowa, represented Robert Zeidman, a cyber security professional, in the arbitration.

Following the 2020 election, Lindell prominently trumpeted the false theory that the 2020 presidential election involved alleged Chinese government hacking that resulted in votes cast for Donald Trump being switched to Joe Biden. In July 2021, Mike Lindell sponsored his own so-called “Cyber Symposium”, which he said would provide an opportunity for technical experts in cyber forensics to examine and evaluate the evidence presented by Lindell.

Lindell was so confident in the validity of his so-called “evidence” that, as part of his Cyber Symposium, he held the “Prove Mike Wrong Challenge” and offered a $5 million prize to anyone who could prove the data was not valid. The Arbitration panel declared unequivocally that Zeidman proved Mike wrong and won the contest.
