During discovery, one of the defendant guards admitted he gave Gee the coffee knowing it contained the glass fragments. Gee filed suit in federal court claiming intentional assault and battery and deliberate indifference to his serious medical needs. The New York DOCS agreed to pay Gee $115,000 to settle the suit. Settlement occurred during jury selection for trial. Gee was represented by PLN subscriber Joseph Viener of Mineola NY. See: Gee v. great Meadow Correctional Facility USDC NDNY case No. 97-CIV-1908.
