The Claimant: A Memoir of an Historic Sexual Abuse Lawsuit and a Woman's Life Made Whole (Paperback)
(This book cannot be returned)
When Rachel Weinhaus was five years old, a sixteen-year-old boy sexually assaulted her in the woods near her home. She never spoke of her violation, not to her parents, not to her siblings, not even, decades later, to her spouse-she wouldn't speak a word of it for thirty-eight years until an envelope arrived from her graduate school alma mater, informing her she was a part of a two-hundred-fifteen-million-dollar settlement claim against the University of Southern California and sexual predator George Tyndall. The Claimant is Rachel's story of being a class member in this historic lawsuit and how being a Claimant shattered her life, and then saved it.
