Anthony Medina had already reported the alleged occurrence to the police; however, the prosecution has not yet taken any action on the matter.
A candidate for public office in the state of Oregon has filed a lawsuit against a massage parlor and the owner of the business, alleging that his genitalia was inappropriately touched during a session there.
Anthony Medina, the Democratic leader of the Woodburn School Board, has initiated legal action against the spa’s owner, Fuxiu Zhen, and the facility itself, seeking a total of $450,000 in damages.
Plaintiff is said to have “immediately informed the masseur that he did not want to be treated in that manner,” which is a quote from Oregon Public Broadcasting (OPB). After about twenty minutes, the masseuse “quickly touched Plaintiff’s feet for ten seconds” before terminating the service, and Medina “immediately” left the establishment.
According to the Oregon Capital Chronicle, Medina’s claims include a battery for the unwanted touching as well as allegations of “human trafficking, indentured servitude, prostitution, and other criminal activities.” Other allegations include negligently hiring unlicensed massage therapists and failing to properly train employees regarding illegal touching. It is stated in the lawsuit that Zhen and the other masseuses identified were practicing massage therapy in Oregon without holding valid licenses. Zhen, on the other hand, appears to hold a certificate in California.
