Dr. Soon K. Kim, owner of Signature Health Care Services, was questioned in 2019 during a trial involving sexual misconduct by a former employee of a Signature company, Vista del Mar in Ventura. The California State Supreme Court said Wednesday it won't hear a challenge over court decisions that said a Ventura psychiatric hospital shared liability for an employee's sexual contact with patients. The denial comes after an appellate court affirmed a Ventura County Superior Court jury's decision three years ago to award $13.
