Beal filed suit in state court and the county settled the lawsuit by agreeing to pay him $32,500. The county had claimed that Beal's injury was preexisting because he had suffered a similar injury before being imprisoned while working in construction. Beal was represented by Ft. Lauderdale attorney Peter Feld. See: Beat v. Jenne , Broward County Circuit Court No. 00-14398-04.
