$2,000 Settlement in Failure to Treat Dental Problems

Officials with the Utah Department of Corrections agreed on June 28, 2004, to settle a lawsuit claiming they were deliberately indifferent to prisoner Brian K. Stack’s dental condition.

Stack apparently claimed that his transfer from a Utah prison to the Dove Correctional Corporation facility in Pearsall, Texas deprived him of adequate dental treatment.

To settle the claim for events in 1995 and 1996, Stack accepted $2,000 for damages, $355 for costs, and $1,800 for attorneys’ fees. See: Stack v. McCotter, U.S.D.C. (D. Utah), Case No: 02:97-CV-466-C.
