Sexual assault lawsuit filed against prominent Coral Gables restaurant, La Dorada

Lawsuit alleges La Dorada owner sexually harassed and assaulted an 18-year-old hostessWHAT: Jeff Herman (www.hermanlaw.com), a nationally recognized attorney for victims of sexual abuse, announces the filing of a lawsuit against LA DORADA for the sexual assault of a hostess by restaurant manager/owner, Domingo Gandara.

According to the Complaint:

  • When Amanda Gonzales was 18 years old, she was hired to work at La Dorada as a hostess. Domingo Gandara was Amanda’s direct supervisor. From the very beginning of her employment, Gandara engaged in sexual harassment of Amanda.
  • Amanda was told that she should “dress more sexy” and to “show more”. Gandara referred to Amanda as “forbidden fruit” and he told her that she is “very sexual”.
  • On a Saturday night after Amanda had completed her work, Gandara told Amanda he would walk her to her car. When he was alone with Amanda, he sexually assaulted her. Gandara first grabbed and fondled Amanda’s breast. In the parking garage, Gandara pressed himself against her and forcedly licked her face.
  • Amanda felt helpless, disgusted, and violated as a result of this attack by Gandara. She did not return to work at La Dorada.

AMANDA GONZALEZ v. LA DORADA CORAL GABLES, INC. and DOMINGO GANDARA was filed last week in Miami-Dade County Court.
