CASE ENTRY

Martin v. Milwaukee County

Milwaukee County Jail has zero-tolerance policy forbidding corrections officers from having sexual contact with inmates, trains guards to avoid such contact and quizzes them to demonstrate they understand. Guard rapes inmate multiple times anyway; he’s later fired, prosecuted, jailed for three days. Jury awards inmate $6.7 mil. Seventh Circuit: The county need not pay it.
