Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) April 05, 2016

In November 2015, Lama Norbu, defendant and former Tibetan Lama, was ordered to pay Plaintiff Emilia Wang $25,035 in general damages after being found guilty of sexual assault (Wang vs. Norbu; Case No.: BC517398; Superior Court of California , County of Los Angeles, Central District).

In light of the defendant’s filed notice of appeal on Friday, February 12, Wang continues to applaud the court’s decision.

Wang’s complaint against Norbu alleged battery, assault, sexual assault, intentional infliction of emotional distress and negligent infliction of emotional distress.

According to court documents, Norbu, also known as Mr. Ven. Nurbu Lama, other times known as Longbu, is a former Tibetan Lama who taught classes for the New Century Foundation. Wang volunteered at the NCF during the time Norbu taught there.

On October 2, 2011, Wang, as part of her volunteer duties, was asked to pick up Norbu and drive him to a seminar location and back to the house where he was staying. During the return trip, Wang alleges Norbu made unwanted advances, going so far as to put his hand on her thigh, pinching it hard enough to leave a bruise. Her complaint further alleges that Norbu “commanded”Wang to carry grocery bags into his home upon their return, at which point he attempted to assault her.

The matter was tried in court on October 5, 6 and 7, 2015, and court documents state that the plaintiff’s testimony was found credible regarding the emotional trauma she suffered, continuing through to the present. Norbu was ultimately found guilty of assault, battery, sexual assault, and intentional infliction of emotional distress. The plaintiff’s counsel made no request for future damages beyond the requested $25,000 in general damages.

The appeal’s court date has yet to be set.
