$10,000 Settlement in Failure to Protect From Tuberculosis by Seattle Jail

Washington State’s King County Jail paid $12,500.32 to settle the claim of Michael Regan, who claimed that he contracted tuberculosis (TB) while in the jail from June 28 to July 4, 2001, because he was housed with a prisoner who had TB. His claim states the jail knew the prisoner was diagnosed with TB, but failed to exercise its duty to protect him from becoming infected.

Regan was given $10,000 for his injuries and $2,500.32 in expenses. No further information is available, but the claim form is available on PLN’s website. See: In re Regan, King County Claim No. 30969.
