Seiler v. Kruse.

May 2, 2019

A pre-trial detainee filed suit against two correctional officers for their failure to protect him from another inmate’s assault and for their failure to provide him with medical care. The Court granted summary judgment, finding that due to the Defendants’ lack of knowledge of any risk posed to the pre-trial detainee by the new detainee, and the lack of any objective indication that the new detainee would attack; the officers had not failed to protect the pre-trial detainee by placing the new detainee in his cell. Michael Condon and Tony Fioretti represented the Defendants. Seiler v. Kruse, et al., Case No. 17-cv-1370 (C.D. Ill. Feb. 28, 2019). Click to read more.
