CASE ENTRY

Hardeman v. Curran

The downside of one of the more nauseating decisions this week? The Seventh Circuit had to explain that “the stench … was compounded as insects became drawn to the standing feces and urine.” The upside? No qualified immunity for Lake County, Ill. jail officials who allegedly spent three days depriving pretrial detainees of enough water to drink, bathe, and flush the toilets.
