Ohio Prisoner Assaulted By Militant Group Awarded $70,000

In July 1997, the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio
awarded $70,000 to a prisoner who was assaulted by a militant group while
imprisoned in the Trumbull County Jail. The 45-year-old prisoner, a white
male, suffered a fractured rib and nose, an eye contusion, and a concussion
as a result of the February 1994 attack.

The prisoner sued the county deputies who ran the jail for violating his
constitutional rights and for failing to assist him during the attack. The
deputies contended they never heard the prisoner ask for assistance. See:
Harvey v. Trumbull County Deputies, USDC ND OH, Case No. 4:95-CV-92l, 1997
WL 1054317.
