New York Prisoner Awarded $750 Following Assault

On November 26, 2007, New York prisoner, George Combes, was awarded $750 for injuries he suffered during an assault by another prisoner. He was in protective custody at the time of the incident, as was his attacker. State officials conceded liability in the case, although they attempted to lessen the extent of the relatively minor injuries Combes received. In addition to the $750 award, Combes was also granted court costs.
