Inadequate Dental Care Results in Settlement

Inadequate dental care results in settlement

In 1994, William Smith sued the dental department at the WSP for failing to provide annual check-ups and routine teeth cleanings. The DOC settled the case by agreeing to provide Mr. Smith with the services he complained were absent from the WSP dental department and to cover his court costs ($50). Mr. Smith was not represented by counsel. See: Smith v. Biagi, No. CS-94-270-JLQ (U.S.D.C. E.D. Wash., June 23, 1995).
