The complaint alleged Wexford failed to properly train and supervise its medical staff and failed to ensure its medical equipment was up to date. The suit also claimed Dr. Kul Sood did not ensure that an oxygen tank brought to the prisoner’s cell was full and properly working; he further failed to provide the prisoner with adequate asthma medication.
With two surviving minor children, the lawsuit alleged loss of parental services as a result of the prisoner’s death. The matter was settled in January 2009. The prisoner’s estate was represented by Chicago attorney Kurt D. Lloyd. See: Cooper v. Wexford Health Services, Will County Circuit Court, 12th Judicial Circuit (IL), Case No. 05-L-805.
