Yesterday, the Minnesota Court of Appeals brought a measure of justice to our client, Renee "Rae" Florek , upholding a previous, unanimous ruling in her civil lawsuit against ex-boyfriend Randall Lee Vannet, who admitted to raping her in 2013, while she was unconscious due to prescribed medication to relieve symptoms of throat cancer.
“Minnesotans have some of the most meaningful civil and human rights protections in the country. We value the right to work, go to school and live free of harassment or discrimination.
