Rosters, rules and other previously secret information about the Everglades Club soon could become public in the wake of a lawsuit filed against the club Wednesday by a former employee who was raped there two years ago.

Melissa Legare, 22, a former pantry cook, awoke in the predawn hours of April 2, 2006, to a co-worker raping her in her dormitory room at the club.

Legare, then 20, fought off Esdras Cardona, an illegal resident from Guatemala, until he left the room and the police were called. Cardona, a dishwasher, was convicted of the rape last summer and is serving a 20-year sentence.

West Palm Beach attorney Ted Babbitt filed the lawsuit in Palm Beach County Circuit Court, alleging the club failed to supply adequate and heightened security, failed to support her after the crime and failed to properly check Cardona's background.

I hope she wins this. Not all illegals are rapists, obviously. But had the Everglades Beach Club only hired legal residents and/or citizens this waste of dna would not have been hired, and thus would not have raped Ms. Legare.
