CASE ENTRY

Carr v. El Paso County, Colorado

Arrestee arrives at El Paso County, Colo. jail with a broken foot encased in a medical boot. Allegation: The jail’s medical provider removed the boot, took away the arrestee’s wheelchair and crutches. Forced to hobble, the arrestee suffers new fractures in his foot. Tenth Circuit: His suit can proceed against the medical provider individually (though not against her employer or the county).
