During count at the Jail on October 4, 2006, at around 3:00 PM, prisoner Tanner C. Brown was sitting on the bunk with his arm resting on the metal frame. Underneath him was his bunkmate, Mr. James, who was fast asleep. When James failed to respond to guard L. Mients’s call, Mients violently kicked the bunk bed.
As a result, the steel upright railing that Brown was leaning against “violently struck” his elbow, causing immediate pain. Brown went to see a nurse and filed a grievance.
Represented by the Law Office of David S. Roth in Seattle, Brown accepted the $10,000 settlement for damages and fees on September 4, 2008.
