estate, a former teacher at the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility,
settled a State Court civil wrongful death lawsuit for $1,299,719.35

was taken hostage by unknown prisoners, assaulted with a deadly weapon,

settlement of this matter on September 19, 1995, without admission of
liability. See: Taylor v. Dept. of Rehabilitation and correction, No. 93-
