New York Jail Brutality Suit Settled for $3,500

On September 25, 1998, the City of New York settled a brutality suit for $3,500. Edward Massey, a prisoner at the Anna M. Kross Center In East Elmhurst, New York, was attacked by several jail guards after he protested the beating of another prisoner. Massey suffered bruises and lacerations.

Massey filed suit, pro se, claiming the beating violated his constitutional rights. After assorted pretrial maneuvers, the defendants settled the case without admitting any wrongdoing. The city of New York paid Massey $3,500 to dismiss the suit. Readers should note this is an unpublished settlement. If you win an unpublished jury verdict or settle a case, let us know about it.
