Morrison was later placed in administrative segregation for four months. One of the guards who beat him later quit and another was suspended for one day.
At trial Morrison presented evidence that he was victimized because the assailant guards wanted to teach other prisoners not to "disrespect" guards.
The jury awarded Morrison $12,000 in compensatory damages for pain and suffering and $3,000 in punitive damages. See: Morrison v. Davis, US DC, Ohio, Columbus Division, Case No. C2-97-1305.
