Arthur Billups went in for medical treatment on December 28 and 29 for a test to determine how much light he could tolerate for a skin treatment. In administering the test, medical staff at MCC-Washington State Reformatory used too much light for too long, burning Billups.
Billups filed a tort claim asking for $700,000 in damages. The DOC agreed to pay Billups $1,000 in settlement without suit.
