New York Prisoner Awarded $12,500 For Inadequate Ulcer Treatment

In June 1998, a New York court of claims awarded $12,500 to state prisoner
who claimed he received substandard medical care while imprisoned.

The plaintiff claimed that in December 1994 prison medical personnel
inadequately treated his simple ulcer. The defendants denied they were
negligent and argued that more aggressive treatment would not have impacted
his chronic condition. See: Mihileas v. State Of New York, Albany County
Court Of Claims, Case No. 93120, 1998 WL 952993.
