Wallace Mitchell alleged that on or about December 27, 1997, Morton Gilbert, Sr., a guard for the District of Columbia Department of Corrections “began a pattern of sexually harassing” Mitchell by asking for “sexual favors.” Gilbert allegedly threatened Mitchell with false disciplinary action if he refused to assent to his demands.
After Mitchell rebuffed Gilbert, he was placed in segregation. Mitchell reported Gilbert, but according to Mitchell’s suit, a variety of guards, prison investigators, and administrators covered up Gilbert’s harassment and continued to retaliate against Mitchell.
The District settled the case for $3,000. Mitchell represented himself. See: Mitchell v. District of Columbia, No. 99-2067 (D. Col, 2002).
