By this time, five months had passed since his arrest. He was finally given a parole hearing and was exonerated and ordered released from custody. However, the release did not occur for another three weeks.
Dreher filed a civil rights action in state court complaining of deliberate indifference to serious medical needs, Americans with Disabilities Act violations and intentionally delayed release. On July 7, 2008, the suit was settled for $2,500 including attorney fees and costs. By that time, the court had dismissed all defendants except one prison official, Jill Brown, from the suit. Dreher was represented by Redwood City attorney Michael E. Adams. See: Dreher v. Brown, Marin Co. Superior Court, Case No. CV 065188.
