Plaintiff Herbert Morrison claimed that on October 29, 1998, he was assaulted by other prisoners. During the attack, he was stabbed in the neck with metal shanks. Morrison further claimed the failure to receive adequate emergency medical care added to the seriousness of his injuries. The suit settled prior to trial for $6,500.
Morrison was represented by Geoffrey D. Allen of Washington, D.C. See: Morrison v. District of Columbia, D.C. Superior Court, Civil Action No. 99-1143.
