CASE ENTRY

Cooper v. Montgomery County, Ohio Sheriff’s Department

District court: There is no clearly established right for suicidal pretrial detainees not to be deprived of bedding and forced to sleep on a freezing concrete floor for several consecutive months in constantly lit, frequently noisy area—so qualified immunity for Montgomery County, Ohio jail officials. But the detainee can sue the county. Jury: The county isn’t liable. Sixth Circuit. Affirmed.
