Landmark Cases

  • Jason successfully settled a groundbreaking clergy sexual abuse case in Oklahoma City. He represented five young girls that were sexually abused by their childrens’ pastor. After two years of aggressively pursuing the responsible national and local church entities along with the local university through which the childrens’ pastor had obtained his internship and after taking over 90 depositions, Jason obtained a highly confidential monetary settlement for the young girls along with forcing the national and local church and the local university to change their policies and procedures. Indeed, as part of the confidential monetary settlement, the national church agreed to make a litany of changes throughout the entire United States and Canada to better protect the children in its churches. Jason also forced the local university to establish a scholarship program for prospective students who have been victims of abuse or who desire to pursue a career in child advocacy.
  • Jason previously forced another national church to change its ways and better protect children from sexual predators. Indeed, in that case, he obtained a $36,000,000, the 47th largest verdict in the U.S. in 2005 as recognized by the National Law Journal. The case generated extensive news media worldwide and helped bring focus to the need to better protect children entrusted to religious organizations.
