Sex Trafficking Lawsuits Against Hotels

NYC human sex trafficking attorneyHuman sex trafficking has become a worldwide problem. It involves individuals from all backgrounds and ages. Predators hold victims captive and force them to engage repeatedly in vile sexual acts. Predators commonly use hotel chains to force these criminal actions upon their victims.

If you or someone you care about has been the victim of human sex trafficking, you are entitled to certain legal rights. Our team of experienced NYC human sex trafficking attorneys will listen to your facts and help you take the necessary legal action against the responsible parties. We will take all necessary measures to get you the justice you deserve.

Sex Trafficking Lawsuits Against Hotel Chains

Approximately 1,500 claims have been investigated and filed nationwide in the past year accusing major hotel chains, including Marriott, Hilton, and Wyndham of not only ignoring sex trafficking on their properties, but also profiting from it. The lawsuits, which have been filed in both state and federal courts and involve dozens of hotel companies, seek monetary compensation as well as policies to stop trafficking at both corporate-owned and franchised locations.

Lawsuits have thus far been filed against the following national hotel chains, accusing them of being complicit in sex trafficking:

  • Hilton
  • Wyndham
  • Days Inn
  • Super 8
  • Best Western
  • Red Lion
  • Marriott
  • Choice Hotels
  • Extended Stay America
  • Motel 6

These lawsuits argue that hotels would and should be reasonably aware of human sex trafficking on their properties and point to an array of external indications, such as online reviews discussing the activity and police busts on site. The suits make use of the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act, which allows for civil suits against people and entities reasonably aware of the trafficking, and, in some instances, turning a profit from it.

The legal team at Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C. is investigating sex trafficking cases against hotel chains. We believe that thousands of victims need legal representation and deserve justice against these hotel chains and many other companies that can be named as accessories to these crimes.

Qualifications for a Sex Trafficking Lawsuit

In 2000, Congress passed the Trafficking Victims Protection Act. Congress subsequently expanded and strengthened the Act in 2003, 2005, 2008 and 2013 as the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act.

These laws allow victims of human sex trafficking, both U.S. citizens or otherwise, to seek benefits and secure protection against deportation. In addition, 18 U.S.C. §1591 and 1595 of the Act allow victims to bring civil actions against those responsible, including organizations that enable, harbor, hold, facilitate, or financially benefit from trafficking. Unfortunately, approximately 80% of sex trafficking arrests are made in or around hotels.

If you or someone you care about has been the victim of sex trafficking and believe that a business such as a hotel or listing service profited from such horrid acts, you may qualify to bring a lawsuit against those parties and seek money damages. These lawsuits can be filed anonymously to protect victim identities.

A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of... Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers. I highly recommend the firm of Gersowitz Libo and Korek without hesitation and, in fact, I already have. My thanks go out to the entire team for a better than expected outcome!!! They get a 5 out of 5 stars from me!!read more
