BOP Prisoner Receives $5,000 Settlement for Medical Care Claim

The federal Bureau of Prisons paid $5,000 to settle a prisoner’s civil rights action claiming deliberate indifference to his medical needs.

Prisoner Herman Resnick claimed that while at U.S. Penitentiary Lompoc in California in 1998 he was denied two pairs of boots and support stockings to his varicose veins.

Resnick filed his handwritten petition pro se.  On February 22, 2001, he agreed to accept $5,000 to settle his claim.  See:  Resnick v. United States, USDC, C.D. California, Case No CV-98-7856.
