$150,000 Settlement in Wrongful Death Suit Against Kitsap County Jail

Washington State’s Kitsap County Jail paid $150,000 to settle the claim of the estate of David Franklin, who committed suicide at the jail on August 21, 2000. The claim asserts the jail failed to properly treat Franklin or properly assess the suicide risk he posed, and that he should not have been removed from suicide watch.

Represented by Poulsbo attorney Richard C. Tizzano, the claim was settled on August 13, 2002. The documents related to this claim are available on PLN’s website. See: In re Estate of Franklin, Kitsap Co. Claim No. LO632-KS059 (Aug. 13, 2002).
