assaulted by his cellmate, suffering multiple facial fractures, visual impairment, loss of teeth, facial
nerve damage, headaches, and emotional distress. The prisoner plaintiff's complaint alleged the Jail failed to protect him by not providing a safe condition by failing to warn him and placing him in the cell with a violent prisoner.
The matter proceeded to jury trial in October 1998, with the jury awarding the plaintiff $654 in past medical costs and $60,000 in pain and suffering. See: Brooks v. Consolidated City of Jacksonville, Florida 1998 WL 1019354.
