Hollie sued in state court alleging prison officials negligently supervised prisoner-workers and failed to provide a reasonably safe work environment. Defendants denied liability but a jury found for Hollie, awarding him $87,907 for past wages, $15,000 for future wage loss, and $232,500 for other damages, totaling $335,407. See: Hollie v. Beauregard Parish Police Jury, 680 So. 2d 1218 (La. Ct. App. 1996).
