On February 12, 2007, Vancouver, Washington resident Nathan Miller filed a claim alleging Washington DOC was responsible for property damages he incurred the previous month. DOC supervisor, Scott Wilcox, was serving a warrant at Mr. Miller's address on a man who no longer lived there. Since no one was home at the time to open the door, it was subsequently battered open, causing extensive damage to the door and door frame. On March 13, 2007, DOC compensated Mr. Miller for the damage in the amount of $1,192.
