One accuser has come forward and said that Renee’s ex, Grundhoffer, had sexually assaulted her when she was a minor. She filed court documents in Washington state on June 4, 2018, and she sued the State of Washington, the Department of Social and Health Services, and the Child Study and Treatment Center.

The alleged victim said she was held at the Child Study and Treatment Center when she was a minor because she had a disability. She said that while in the center she met Grundhoffer, who was an employee there.

The victim said that Grundhoffer took advantage of her when she was underage and he was in his early 30s.

“Defendants knew or should have known that Grundhoffer posed a danger to [Plaintiff] and others at CSTC,” the court papers obtained by Radar stated. “[Plaintiff] met Grundhoffer at a time when she was a minor child and vulnerable.”

The plaintiff said that Grundhoffer groomed her during their therapy sessions and “breached his ethical duties by engaging in a sexual relationship with [Plaintiff] while she was a patient, a minor child and held at CSTC.” She said that she was dependent on Grundhoffer because he was in a position of authority but he violated that trust when he pursued a sexual relationship.



In the lawsuit, the plaintiff claims that she suffered great emotional harm and shame from the relationship with Grundhoffer.

A trial has been set for June 3, 2019. The plaintiff is seeking damages and legal fees.

Meanwhile, Renee is in the divorce process with Grundhoffer. She filed in 2017, and on December 8, she filed a request for a restraining order. She said that she wanted to protect herself and their son Maverick.

Renee said that Grundhoffer was verbally abusive in 2014 and that she found graphic messages between her husband and another woman that exposed an interest in bestiality and pedophilia.

“The conversations were recent and involved bestiality and the proposals of sex acts with minor children, including the proposal of involving sex acts with Matthew’s minor child, age 12, from a previous relationship,” Renee said. “I am fearful for him to be left alone with our minor son.”

Grundhoffer did not respond to a request for comment from Radar.
