The blogging world will appreciate this.

Our firm handled a case against a local company that cares for disabled adults. We alleged that the negligence of the staff of Didlake, Inc. caused serious injury to a disabled adult, necessitating surgery to install a titanium rod into his leg. Didlake denied the claim, denied it was responsible and took the position that it couldn't be sued because it was a "charitable organization" entitled to charitable immunity.

The trial court ruled that Didlake was right and that this severely disabled adult could not sue it.

We took the case to the Supreme Court of Virginia and lost. We were challenging Didlake's assertion, as a multi-million dollar organization, that it was entitled to "charitable immunity.

Didlake won the argumemt and full credit to them for asserting the winning argument this time.

However, the case is important. In our view charitable immunity is a relic from the dark ages, especially in a world of insurance (which Didlake has) and the fact that the charitable immunity doctrine singles out ONLY those who are receiving the benefit of the charity, and makes them the sacrificial lambs in the interest of something as ill-defined and nebulous as the "public interest."

Anyway, several bloggers picked up on our press release and blogs and of course, there is a court opinion on the case. The opinion is favorable to Didlake.

So its just very interesting that Didlake is trying to convince bloggers to take down factual, truthful, blogs.

Here is Didlake's letter to the attorney blogger.

Didlake does not take the time to learn about different disabilities, I've tried repeatedly to tell them of my son's difficulties and in return was barred from getting out of my vehicle on company property. My son called his Project Manager to request more hours, he was told to contact the PM from Didlake's HR department. When my son talked to his PM the PM told him he should take it up with the Assistant Project Manager, which he has already done. This is a new PM, the last one encouraged all employees to contact him if they had any questions!

I second that. Didlake inc treats their employees with disabilities like trash. They are verbally abusive and if government employees insult or make rude remarks, didlake will not back you up. They are a disgrace.

I agree there is a lot of mistreatment of the employees and bullying but a lot of the employees are scared to say anything for fear of loosing their jobs and getting yield at.

Didlake treats employees with disabilities very poorly evidence by verbal abuse and refuses to listen to their concerns and suggestions. On some of their government locations there has been sexual assaults against women with disabilities in the northern Virginia area and didlake covers up their criminal behavior by blaming the female victims and removing the perpetrator to another location. I would never recommend this company to anyone to work for. They are very abusive. Anonymous number 2

Im sorry but after working for this company, I've come to the realization that Didlake Inc. is the worst company to work for. They expect you to kill yourself on the road ways in a snow storm to work garbage hours and make garbage pay. They don' t respect they're employees except for the team leaders and jump down your throat because they don't think your doing your job right even if the cleaning you do is on point. They act like you don't even exsist to the company unless they want to complain about how great of a job your actually doing. This job has no common sense and i would never work for this company again even if it was they last business on Earth. They are a huge waste of time and money and if they can't get they're priorities straight no one with be working for them much longer. Either learn to run a business the right way or don't run a business at all.
