Scalding Death

Guthrie, OK: (Sep-26-07) The family of Julie Teenor, a developmentally disabled woman who died in 2005 after being scalded, brought a lawsuit against the Commission for Human Services, alleging that the wrongful death occurred as a result of negligence. The suit claimed that Teenor was receiving supported living services through the Developmentally Disabled Services Division of the Department of Human Services when she was scalded by hot water Aug. 10, 2005, after being left unsupervised by a contractor to bathe. Jane Hollenbeck filed suit in 2006 in Tulsa County to recover damages stemming from the death of her 38-year-old daughter, Julie Teenor. In a settlement reached, the Commission for Human Services agreed to pay $135,000 to Teenor's family to resolve the allegations. Other defendants reached confidential settlements with Hollenbeck at a court-ordered mediation session in August 2007. [TULSA WORLD: SCALDING DEATH]
