Defendant Constant Bahi’s Motion to Dismiss Denied by Federal Court

March 17, 2017

David E. Mann & Vera D. Mann, Plaintiffs, v. Constant Ottro Bahi, et al., Defendants.

In the United States District Court for the District of Columbia.

Civil Action No. 16-949 (JDB)

MEMORANDUM OPINION

Drs. David Mann and Vera Mann are an elderly couple who claim they were swindled and robbed by the nurses they had trusted to provide needed nursing care in their home. They hired these health care professionals—Constant Ottro Bahi, Marie Poteman, and Mariatu Sesay—through a company that provides a listing of licensed nurses, Tri-Cities Nurse Registry and Helpmates. The Manns bring multiple intentional and unintentional tort claims against the nurses and the company, and bring a Consumer Protection Procedures Act claim against the company. One of the nurses, Bahi, moves to dismiss Count V, intentional infliction of emotional distress, against him because he argues that the Manns have failed to state facts sufficient to support that claim. As explained below, the Court will deny Bahi’s motion to dismiss Count V.
