Paul Shedlock sued the DOC after staff at MCI Norfolk refused to accommodate him with a cell on the first floor, and then retaliated against him for complaining about it. The defendants retaliated against Shedlock by placing him in segregation and housing him on the second floor, despite knowing that such action was contraindicated for his disability. Shedlock was also improperly disciplined for refusing to accept bed assignments on the second floor.
The defendants agreed to settle the case for $15,000. Shedlock was represented by Myong Joun of the Law Offices of Howard Freidman, P.C., a Boston firm.
