The court, in an unpublished ruling, denied the defendants summary judgment on these claims and held that a trial was required to resolve conflicting factual disputes. The parties settled shortly afterwards.
The Utah DOC paid Hansen $4,000 to dismiss the suit. The Utah DOC denied all liability arising from Hansen's suit. Hansen's attorney, Gregory Savage, agreed to waive his attorney fees in order to secure the settlement. Readers should note this is an unpublished settlement. See: Hansen v. Jorgensen , Case Number 91-CV-991. USDC Utah.
