Plaintiffs' counsel claimed that Damon used the No Child Left Behind database to locate female students that he could recruit for the ABC Company. According to counsel, the database allowed for Damon to acquire Dallas's home address and visit the plaintiff in fall 2003. Counsel further alleged that, shortly after he initially visited Dallas, Damon invited her to the ABC Company' Sacramento recruiting office where he supplied her with liquor and had sex with her on February 3, 2004 and March 4, 2004. Counsel then claims that Damon used an unsupervised sleepover event on March 17-18, 2004, to coordinate a third sexual encounter, this time with Dallas bringing her friend, Martha Rice, who had sex with Fallows.
Plaintiffs' counsel contended that the two recruiters used their status as Marine recruiters to persuade and coerce the two high school students into having sex with them. Counsel also maintained that Damon and Fallows provided the girls with alcohol and Vicodin, pulled out mats from the closet and then raped them. According to counsel, Damon went so far as to tell Dallas that the only way that she'd get into the ABC Company was if she allowed him to have sex with her.
