CASE ENTRY

Hanson v. Madison County Detention Center

Allegation: Madison County, Ky. jail officers beat up arrestee, causing nerve damage that will require surgery. Sixth Circuit: His suit should not have been dismissed. Several officers’ on-camera jokes about being fired or indicted add an “unpleasant gloss” to the case.
