A woman in New York, who was raped by a man who entered her apartment building through doors that were supposed to be locked, has received a $1 million settlement. The woman contended that the doors were broken and open during the day of the assault and that the superintendent repeatedly failed to close the building’s rear door. The Defense lawyers contended that the woman’s assailant was a stalker and that, as such, locks would not have prevented the incident. The Defense also claimed the doors and locks worked properly. Nevertheless, the Defendant settled the case.
