CASE ENTRY

Poore v. Glanz

Jury: Tulsa, Okla. jail officer sexually assaulted underage inmate numerous times over several months. Tenth Circuit: The sheriff, by choosing to hold female juveniles in adult jail in an isolated area (in 23-hour a day confinement) with no surveillance cameras and often just one guard on duty, was deliberately indifferent to the risk. No need to reconsider the jury’s $25k award.
