Jail inmate alleged that correctional officers failed to keep him safe and failed to prevent a fight after a “rival” inmate was let into the same day room. Michael Condon and Jason Rose successfully filed a motion for summary judgment for the officers. In granting the motion, the court ruled that the inmate could not show that the officers acted with “deliberate indifference” – since both the officers and the plaintiff were surprised by the “rival” inmate’s attack. James v. Kankakee County, No. 14-2283 (C.D. Ill. July 1, 2016). Click to read more.
