Baugh Industrial Contractors, 159 Wn. 2d 413, 150 P. 3d 545 (2007).  
  • Scott was one of the lead attorneys at GLP Attorneys handling the case of a young woman that suffered a serious brain injury in a playground accident.  $7 million policy limit settlement plus an undisclosed seven figure amount from additional defendants, 2009
  • Scott was an integral part of a team at GLP Attorneys that changed Washington State law in 2016 and expanded protection for nursing home residents in Washington. In Kim v. Lakeside Adult Family Home, 185 Wn. 2d 532, 374 P.3d 121 (2016), a unanimous Washington State Supreme Court held the vulnerable adult statute, R.C.W. 74.34, creates an implied cause of action against mandated reporters who fail to report suspected abuse or neglect.  Before this decision, the only penalty for not reporting suspected abuse was a possible misdemeanor charge, which was rare. This decision creates new law in that there is now a civil cause of action against mandatory reporters who fail to report suspected abuse and neglect of vulnerable adults. That means that nursing home owners and employees, all health care providers under R.C.W. 18, DSHS employees, social workers, professional school personnel, and others, can be subject to a civil suit should they not report. , 2016
