In April 2000, Plaintiff Nadeane Myrick, a 21-year veteran of the DCDC, was exposed to a floor stripper containing monethanolamine. Myrick sought medical attention and claimed she suffered respiratory damage as a result. Myrick continued to be exposed to the floor stripper vapors for the next six months. Myrick was subsequently transferred to the D.C. Jail where she was exposed to second hand smoke from other guards and prisoners despite the jail’s designation as a smoke free facility. The case settled prior to trial for $10,000.
Myrick was represented by John Edwards Harrison of the Alexandria, Virginia law firm Harrison & Hughes, P.C. See: Myrick v. District of Columbia, USDC ED VA, Civil Action No. 03-1045-A.
