$60.00 Paid in Destroyed WA Prisoner's Property

Washington State Penitentiary prisoner Vincent L. Fields filed a tort suit
in the Walla Walla Superior Court alleging negligence for the destruction
or theft of unspecified personal property. Fields was placed in segregation
and his property was placed in the property room. Upon release, Fields
noted some of his property was unaccounted for, and he unsuccessfully
exhausted administrative remedies before filing suit. Acting pro se Fields
settled the claim for $60.00 in 2002. See: Fields v. Correction Officer
Smith, Walla Walla Superior Court, Case no. 02-2-00106-9, unpublished.
