Jail Death/Police Brutality
Settlement against the Allen County Sheriff's Department for the wrongful death of an inmate who died as a result of the jail staff's failure to monitor and treat delirium tremens (severe alcohol withdrawal). At the time the lawsuit was filed, it was believed that the decedent died as the result of blunt force trauma resulting in a brain hemorrhage. However, after extensive discovery, including obtaining the jail's medical records and consulting with a medical expert, it was later determined that Plaintiff died as the result of a massive stroke due to the failure to treat Plaintiff's severe alcohol withdrawal. This is believed to be the largest settlement ever against the Allen County Sheriff.
