On August 5, 2014 Howard Ankin was interviewed on CBS Channel 2, 10 o’clock news by reporter Pam Zekman for a story on unsafe massage therapies. Mr. Ankin was chosen for the story because of his experience representing a recent client. Howard will appear on channel 2 news later in the month.
According to CBS Channel 2 article, Geno Randazzo, a therapist at Massage Envy, was allegedly accused of sexual assault by several clients. One of the victims was an anonymous man. He sued the old massage spa where Geno Randazzo worked and another spa that hired Randazzo back. Howard Ankin represented the anonymous victim. In the article, “[t]he suit alleges that my client was violated when he should’ve been provided a safe and secure environment,” said attorney Howard Ankin adding, “You’re in a highly vulnerable situation when you’re getting a massage.”
CBS 2 Investigations found that Massage Envy had civil and criminal complaints in 13 other states where this same spa is located at. More massage therapists from Massage Envy were charged with sexual assault.
