Evidence Keyed to Park
Johnson v. Elk Lake School District
Citation:283 F.3d 138
During the course of the trial, Johnson attempted to introduce the testimony of Karen Radwanski, a teacher’s associate in the high school’s restaurant training program and a friend of Stevens, regarding an incident in which Stevens allegedly sexually assaulted her in the office of another teacher, Tony Blaisure. According to Radwanski, who was wearing a skirt at the time, Stevens’s hand went up her skirt and touched her in the crotch area while he raised her off the floor. Whether Stevens’ alleged touching was intentional or accidental is unclear from the record, as Radwanski offered somewhat inconsistent accounts of the incident. When asked during her deposition, Radwanski seemed unsure: “I guess maybe at the time I didn’t feel right, but I guess the greater part of me not wanting to think anything was just like, you know, shrugged it off, no big deal.”
