Moses-El v. District of Columbia
On April 23, 2001, the District of Columbia paid $16,500 to settle with a prisoner who suffered a broken jaw when he was attacked by another prisoner at the Central Security Facility in October 1999. The suit, filed in D.C. Superior Court, alleges multiple counts of negligence and civil rights violations. The claims are supported by a nice summary of unsafe and hazardous conditions at the D.C. prison facilities during the previous decade, including numerous assaults and murders. The plaintiff was represented by Geoffrey D. Allen of Washington, D.C.
