While working out in the gymnasium of DC’s Occoquan Facility in Lorton, Virginia, on February 19, 1997, Bowman’s right leg came in contact with an exposed hot pipe. He claimed negligence for the pipe not having proper covering or a sign warning of the danger. As a result Bowman sustained second degree burns.
Acting pro se, he settled the matter on April 30, 2000. See: Bowman v. District of Columbia, Superior Court, District of Columbia, Case No. 67834.
