Starr claimed that in April, 1997 while he and other prisoners were in full restraints, including handcuffs, belly chains and shackles, one of the other prisoners escaped his restraints and assaulted Starr, stabbing him numerous times in the head and ear.
The suit, filed in the D.C. Superior Court, settled prior to trial for $5,500. Starr was represented by Tracey E. Hodges and Cynthia M. Hernandez of the Washington, D.C. law firm Hernandez & Hodges. See: Starr v. District of Columbia, D.C. Superior Court, Case No. 99-6711.
