Peninsula Spa Settles Groping Lawsuit
Attorney: Women settle groping suit with spa.
Six women have reached a multi-million-dollar settlement with a San Mateo County spa where they say a masseuse groped them.
The women's attorney, Todd Emanuel, says the settlement with the defunct Sandra Caron European Spa in San Mateo totaled more than $1 million for four of the women.
He says details of the settlement with the other two women were confidential.
San Mateo County prosecutor Karen Guidotti says 35-year-old masseuse Kevin Bradshaw served six months in jail after being convicted in 2008 of sexual battery against two women.
The women who sued the spa all claimed Bradshaw fondled them after getting them relaxed in the course of a normal massage. An attorney for the spa did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
